Ventric/EVD/Bolt site care?

  1. 0 Just wondering what everyone's policy is on site care and dressing changes for ventric/EVD/ICP's. The literature I've found so far pretty much says "per institution policy". I can't even find a recommendation on frequency of dressing changes. Any help/input is appreciated! Thanks!

    At my facility, unless the dressing is messed up or pulling off, it stays intact for the duration. If we have to change it, it's done as sterile as possible.

    I have to agree with the others we just left ours in place unless they needed changing.
