Looking for some guidance from the pediatric experts!
What is your workflow for replacing ostomy output?
Let's say, the order is to replace with 0.45% NS, mL for mL for ostomy output.
That 0.45% NS will ultimately go in the TF bag and be administered enterally.
Would you pull the volume off a 0.45% NS IV bag (stopcock) and reuse for 48 hours? Would you draw up the volume and dispose of the bag each time? We are looking to shore up our workflow and would appreciate hearing how you do this.
