I was very frustrated when we got our new oral care kits and procedure. In an effort to be sure q4 oral care was being done on vented patients, we are to set up a new kit at midnight, date it, and then use that kit for the next 24 hours. Fine. But if the patient is admitted at 1800, we need to break out a new kit for 2000 oral care, and then instructions are to THROW AWAY the rest of the kit and start fresh at midnight. I...don’t do this, but I don’t know if the extra swabs and mouthwash that I stash away are ever being used. Probably not.
