Appreciate recent discussions surrounding heparin infusions.
There is one aspect that remains challenging at our site and it involves "holding" heparin infusions for surgeries/procedures.
How is this done at your site? Do you allow "holds" vs discontinuations / new orders to restart? If holding is OK, how is this communicated to nurses? My concern is an active heparin infusion order on the MAR even though the infusion may be on hold. Any processes in place at yours sites regarding this?
