At my last job in the NICU, we changed our TPN tubing Q72 hours, this seemed to help our infection rate. At my new job we change it Q24 hours. We have a problem with infections in the new unit. Of course the TPN itself is changed Q24, I'm just talking about the tubing. I'm wondering if breaking into the line Q24 is not a good idea.
If you have any literature supportng Q72, could you please let me know?
I'm trying to give my manager some clinical evidence.
