I want to apologize in advance for any errors in this post, as it's my first time using my cell to post. This situation was told to me by my coworker tonight from the evening nurse she relieved. We work LTC and state is here with us this week. The evening nurse had an inspector watching him hook up a GT and give a flush. He went to reach for the syringe hanging on the pole and was told that he could not use it because the syringe was left together and not separated in the bag. OK, so he went and got a new syringe, verified placement, and checked for residual, which there was not any. He was then going to give the water flush, when the inspector stopped him and told him he could not use that syringe as it was now contaminated. I have never heard that before. If it were me and my mouth, I would've asked to see the literature stating not to use the same syringe, but he kept quiet, got another syringe, then proceeded to finish. So I ask you guys, is this something new and we just haven't been informed yet???
