We are updating our policy on what protective apparel is required to perform a bone marrow biopsy, bone marrow aspirate or LP. Does your facility require gowns, masks, goggles and/or caps? Thanks!

The MD dons sterile gloves, the cytologist dones sterile gloves and you as the RN wear non sterile and provide MD with lidocaine or other supplies. No gowns used. Remember a pressure dressing after and check very often based on platelet levels.
