I would like an opinion on the following scenario, my friend (also a nurse) has asked me a question which I'm not sure on, she is quite stressed about not knowing the answer so i thought I'd ask here
Apparently after a priming a 3 way tap for a PIVC she realised a few hours later that in a rush she may have grabbed a Water for injection instead of a normal saline.
Are there any consequences from priming with WFI? has this happened to anyone before?
I wasn't sure on any adverse affects because only a few mls of WFI would have been used. Any advice to ease her mind would be appreciated, I'm also quite curious!
