I need the most current nursingt guidelines for suture and/or staple removal and use of blood warmers (for rapid infusion). Anyone know where I can quickly find them?
What kind of guidelines are you looking for? For instance for staple removal you rub over the staples with betadine prior to removal. Stitches we just take out with a suture removal set. And what do you need to know about the fluid warmer?
Suture/staple removal is a basic nursing function that can be found in any med/surg book. As far as the guidelines for the fluid/blood warmer, the manufacture should have detailed guideline for use. Do you need more than that? Are you writing policies?
