Question: Can 1mg (0.5ml) of Ativan be given IVP undiluted into a central line if flushed before and after as you normally do for any drugs through central line port? Nothing was going in to Central Line.
I was with an ICU nurse this week ( I am a student) that did this and I asked her about it since most books say to give it diluted with equal amount of SW, D5W or NS. She says she does this with central lines but not IVs. I wouldn't give it myself paranoid of given administering a drug wrong, so she did it.
Is this okay or not?
