[IP] RE: I Need Sticky tape site

Hello Scott--

I too work outdoors but I have found the Sils will stay secure better
than the Sof-Sets.  Try taping the Sils down after insertion.  Take a
piece of IV 3000 or any tape, fold into fours, and cut off a corner.
Apply the tape over top of your Sil.  Be sure to use IV Prep.  This
works for me.
