Insulin pump practice question

  1. 0 Does anyone have a policy/procedure/protocol for dealing with insulin pumps in their surgical pts. Our current practice is to allow them to continue based on directive of anesthesia provider, usually @ basal rate, but no standardized monitoring of the pump itself or blood glucoses at any regular intervals. With all the differnet pumps out there, we have an issue with not knowing how to change settings, stop pumps, etc and pts that may be incapacitated post op and can't manage on their own. Thoughts?
