I actually did. My nurse friend (different hospital), her husband is the anesthesiologist at my hospital. I asked her the same question and she ran it by her husband. And they both agreed with me. I guess I needed more validation. LOL
Yes, I did interpret the IV access as "keep the IV in and patent!" not "keep the fluids running"! I'm curious if other postpartum floors are running IV fluids as long as these nurses are. The night shift nurses give me such appalled looks when I tell them I saline locked them. It makes me feel like I'm doing something wrong!
