    Yes, it's in our scope. But it may be a category 2. At least something we had to be tested as a competency on annually on my last unit. On my current unit we don't. If you've had no education/training on it, I don't think it's good practice. There are certain nursing guidelines (once again, at least in my facility) regarding this.
    I hope someone would have more information for you on here. But it sounds to me like you guys are being asked to do this without education, which is not really that safe.
