    It is our RN’s that connect the cells.  The MD/practitioner has to receive the cells on the unit to complete a checking process.

    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!
