    We use Biopatch but do not require an order.

    Do any institutions require a physician order for the application of a Chlorhexidine tegaderm for a central line dressing? We have been using these dressings for a few years now, but our official policy is not yet up to date, and this question has been raised. Any feedback will be appreciated.
