Hi. I just changed my title as I think my other one was not clear. These questions are quite minor.
PCS Recording Form
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?

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.
