  1. Meropenem via PIV

    Hi all, I was wondering if there are any reasons not to administer meropenem via PIV in the home. My company refused a case because the pt did not have a picc or mid line. Another company picked the pt up with just the piv? pH seems acceptable and I ...

  13. Help! IV not properly flushed..

    Hi Ephiph., While the airin the line was probably no problem, any air gap toward the internal end, it could (possibly) cause a coagulation. This is just a theory, but it is not silly. AND, to agree with every one else, it is VERY SLOPPY, and shows a ...
