Parenteral Nutrition Pump Build entry name


We currently have our parenteral nutrition (PN) entry in our Baxter pump to be built as "PN Central" and "PN Peripheral". After identifying a low compliance with the pump entry and discussing with our nurse educators, we have started the conversations of developing a more user friendly entry for nursing to look-up. I am curious what entry nursing is to select on the pump when administering PN. Any pros/cons you have experienced with your current build?

Make it a great day,
