MVNICU Posted May 18, 2020 Share Posted May 18, 2020 Hello Everyone, Does your unit change IVF from an old central line ( UVC fluid) to a new central line (PICC)? On rare occasions we ran into a problem where a UVC fluids was infusing with TPN fluids and a new PICC line was inserted a few hours later. To minimize the cost to the patient, fluids are switched until new TPN comes available on the next pm shift. Our TPN comes at 2100 every day. The IV tubing is not changed when the switched is made because there is not enough fluids to prime it again. We have been zero CLABSI for the past two years, our last incident was from a UVC line. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
