    Here @ Lurie RN connects the tubing directly to the CVC hub and the APN helps to infuse it.

    Hi all. I’m curious who at your facility connects the stem cell products to the patient’s CVL? Currently our MDs or NPs do this, but we would like to propose this being an RN skill. We would like any information you can offer. Thanks!
