    PORT A CATH ISSUE!!

    MY PATIENT'S PORT WAS ACCESSED IN ER TODAY. UPON BEING ADMITTED TO MY FLOOR SHE NEEDED IV PAIN MED. WHEN DRAWING BACK I RECEIVED NO BLOOD RETURN AND WHEN ATTEMPTING TO PUSH THE SITE BEGAN TO SWELL. I D/C'd THE PORT AND BEGAN A PERIPHERAL. AN OLDER RN INSTRUCTED ME TO ALLOW THE SITE A CHANCE TO REST AND MAYBE ACCESS IT IN THE MORNING...I AM ABSOLUTELY UNSURE OF WHAT TO DO B/C THE RN WASNT VERY CONFIDENT IN HER ANSWER AND IM STILL A BABY RN. I FEEL LIKE ITS LIKE STARTING AN IV DIRECTLY WHERE IT INFILTRATED...YOU WOULDNT DO THAT SO WHAT DO I DO. GOTTA FIGURE SOMETHING OUT BY MORNING PLS HELP!
