Re: Re: [IP] Infusion site irritation



David,
just another hint re: sites.  when using betadine you want to allow it to dry
then wipe it off prior to applying the tape.  reason, the betadine creates a
barrier that washes off.  so, when you shower the set can become dislogded.
 i learned this when working with a patient who was using the betadine method
and was losing all of his sites every time he showered.  once we switched how
he was using the betadine the problem resolved.  good luck.
