KFP: The nurses at my facility remove not only hemovacs, jackson pratts, davols, J- and G-tubes, but Epidurals as well as subclavians, picc lines, midlines. We also pull out chest tubes while the MD ties off the suture at the chest tube site. No policy of any kind except for the subclavian and picc line because there are lots of IV policies. Hint: Pre-medication is a nice thing to do for the surgical drain removals.
