Good information....will check out your blog #IVchat nurseeducator The FDA recommends using an alternative product if using the brands... #IVchat InfusionNurse @nursingpins Hey Vernon! Happy to see you! #IVchat nurseeducator Hi Vernon, glad to see u! Welcome..RT @nursingpins: Hi - Vernon in New Orleans - Crit.Care - here to listen and learn. #IVchat InfusionNurse @nurseeducator good to see you too. thanks. #ivchat nursingpins @nurseeducator - that brand is not on the list of recalls, w/c is good...LOL.. #IVchat InfusionNurse @InfusionNurse mostly Boston Scientific from what I read #IVchat nurseeducator @nurseeducator ..yes, that is correct...now they're called Navilyst Medical... #IVchat InfusionNurse Next update: Nice article on preventing errors...http://bit.ly/daeZgx #IVchat InfusionNurse
    • Wow..talk about "reality check"...listening to patients who were affected by errors...#ivchat VascularAccess Does your institution have a "no interruption zone" as per article? #IVchat nurseeducator Not really.. do u? I work in outpt infusion RT @nurseeducator: Does your institution have a "no interruption zone" as per article? #IVchat InfusionNurse read this: "We’re not aware many errors are preventable. errors occur by negligent or uncaring health professionals,that is not me.― #IVchat InfusionNurse No we don't...I wish the article went into more detail on this point. Certainly a good idea! Nurse have enough distractions #IVchat nurseeducator @InfusionNurse ..some nurses do think that way... that they dont make mistakes..#IVchat VascularAccess @InfusionNurse Great article http://bit.ly/daeZgx , thanks. "42% of RNs said their manager would not back them up" still a prob. #ivchat nursingpins @InfusionNurse where in the article is this quote? Scanning it quickly! #IVchat nurseeducator There's one topic for discussion submitted - will post shortly. #IVchat IVchat @VascularAccess ..may not be good - they might skip some precautions ie checks/double checks.. #IVchat InfusionNurse @nurseeducator ..second paragraph...before the culture of safety.. #IVchat InfusionNurse Ready for topic 1? #IVchat IVchat @nursingpins ..safety is still everyone's responsibility not just us RNs! #IVchat InfusionNurse @IVchat ..yes, please LOL... #IVchat InfusionNurse "The general myth is still pervasive"...now the sentence makes sense! #IVchat nurseeducator
    • Completely agree! RT @InfusionNurse @nursingpins ..safety is still everyone's responsibility not just us RNs! #IVchat #IVchat nurseeducator T1 - Manuf has specific infusion rate recommendation 4 a drug. MD ordered a diff infusion rate. Which should you follow? #IVchat IVchat @InfusionNurse agree but leadership is one of the 4 components of "Culture of Safety" nurses need strong clinical leaders #ivchat nursingpins @IVchat ..happens all the time - I usually refer and discuss w/ pharmacy bfore I do anything....#IVchat VascularAccess T1 Discussion first with doc and pharmacy... #IVchat nurseeducator @nursingpins ..it is.. but they usually are the barriers...not much buy in from them.. #IVchat InfusionNurse @nurseeducator @vascularaccess - totally agree... #IVchat InfusionNurse T1 ff-up: RN asking If MD still insist on his orders, even w/ pharm input - would you follow? #IVchat IVchat T1 - knowing that there's a manuf recommendation and orders are against that, I won't... #IVchat VascularAccess @VascularAccess ..I wish all nurses would stand up and do that...there are still a few who would get intimidated... #IVchat InfusionNurse Do we only have one topic tonight? Can I ask a question? #IVchat VascularAccess Sure, post ur ? and others feel free to post ? too. RT @VascularAccess: Do we only have one topic tonight? Can I ask a question? #IVchat IVchat Has anyone used those new chlorhexidine connectors/caps? #IVchat VascularAccess
    • T1 Many of the new hosp pharm progs print the rates for many drugs on the MAR - But I I would have to question it too. #ivchat nursingpins RT @nursingpins: @InfusionNurse Great article http://bit.ly/daeZgx , thanks. "42% of RNs said their manager would not back them up" still a prob. #ivchat shannynlee @VascularAccess No... but we did an extensive trial on the CHG Tegaderm dsg #IVchat nurseeducator RT @InfusionNurse: @nursingpins ..safety is still everyone's responsibility not just us RNs! #IVchat shannynlee @nursingpins @nurseeducator - I think this was a monoclonal AB w/ potential rate related infusion reactions. #IVchat IVchat Not yet RT @VascularAccess: Has anyone used those new chlorhexidine connectors/caps? #IVchat InfusionNurse T1 @nursingpins we have acceptable infusion rates on the drug list programmed on our infusion pumps #IVchat nurseeducator @nurseeducator ..what do u think of those drsgs? #IVchat InfusionNurse It has been my experience that anytime a pharm questions an order - It is best to look into things further. #ivchat nursingpins One more ? - if u noted an extravasation while pt in ICU - what would you do? #IVchat VascularAccess We had very good outcomes. We were able to match our near zero CRBSI rate (when using Biopatch) in the ICU. Learning curve #IVchat nurseeducator @nursingpins ..always safe to be cautious than have probs later... #IVchat InfusionNurse
    • @nurseeducator some hosps have them here ( programmed infusion pumps) they are wonderful - but whole new safety concerns #ivchat nursingpins RT @nursingpins: It has been my experience that anytime a pharm questions an order - It is best to look into things further. #ivchat grimalkinrn @InfusionNurse Agree re: Better to be cautious #IVchat nurseeducator @nurseeducator ..was it biopatch or tegaderm w/chlorhexidine? #IVchat InfusionNurse as long as not bypasssed RT @nursingpins: @nurseeducator programmed infusion pumps are wonderful - but whole new safety concerns #IVchat InfusionNurse good ? for our ICU nurses ...RT @VascularAccess: One more ? - if u noted an extravasation while pt in ICU - what would you do? #IVchat InfusionNurse @InfusionNurse we had used biopatch for years with very low CRBSI...did a 6 month trial with CHG Tegaderm..matched the rate. #IVchat nurseeducator I asked only cuz of a case where extravasation was ignored in order to save pt's life in ICU....#IVchat VascularAccess @InfusionNurse True! We are aware of the bypass option that some RNs use...and periodically address #IVchat nurseeducator Wow, we're on our hour mark - great discussion - please continue but wanted to thank everyone who joined us (or lurked). #IVchat IVchat @VascularAccess re: extravastation - imo - it shld still be managed appropriately #IVchat InfusionNurse @nurseeducator ..some r monitoring who and freq of bypassing rate progs.. #IVchat InfusionNurse pls. continue discussions - next IV chat will be Sept. 16 at 8PM ET. We welcome topics or questions #IVchat IVchat
