    If a medication needs to be given via IV push the nurses will inject it  directly to the CVC.

    If we do IV push we push directly through the CVC cap (we don’t use the side-arm technique with IV fluids).

    When administering IV push chemo into a running line, do you administer it into the maintenance/prehydration IV fluid line and rinse through or do you set up a new medication bag and tubing for this purpose which is discarded afterwards?
