    Yes, we have developed standing orders that the nurses can release for febrile neutropenia and sickle cell disease with fever with the goal of antibiotic administration within one hour.

    We have a current initiative to further reduce our abx administration time for new onset fever in neutropenia or SCD patients. Do any of your institutions use nurse-driven protocols to start abx at patient presentation to ED/clinic? and/or any EBP articles re: the topic?

    thanks
