We are working on how to structure policy around use of PCAs (and other infusions) while patient may be off the unit.
-If a patient has a PCA, do you allow the patient to go off the patient care unit? Are they accompanied? If so, what is the qualifications are required for someone to accompany the patient?
-For patients on other continuous infusions that may be high risk (heparin, insulin, etc) do you allow them to leave the unit? If so, what structure or limitations do you have?
