Just looking for some advice. I am the Oncology Resource Nurse and have had multiple patient c/o nausea following saline flushes. The flushes we use are preservative and latex free. My nurses have now resorted to drawing up their own flushes from a bag of saline which we know is a no-no but we are stuck. Have any of you experienced this? If so what was the solution? Thanks for your advice
I just started in Oncology today...and one of my patients was c/o the same thing.
My preceptor (and the patient) told me that flushing over a minute like the
IV pushes helped some with the nausea....
(By the way, I hope that your first day was better than mine) OY!
