TAKING CPNE- have 2 questions

  1. Hi. I just changed my title as I think my other one was not clear. These questions are quite minor.

    On the
    PCS Recording Form
    Is the
    Intermittent Venous Access Device Maintenance Box:
    1. ONLY FOR Heplock/Saline Lock/Peripheral Flushes? (is that def. of IVAD?)

    2. Would we fill in "condition of the IV site" (temp. or edema) if we weren't assigned a flush?

  2. Visit nurse1717 profile page

    Intermitent venous access device is "saline lock"/"hep lock" which ever you prefer. You do not assess this unless you are assigned to flush the site.

    Don't do anything you are not assigned to do.
