What do institutions do if you are giving Vincristine immediately after port access and then de-accessing? Are the RNs wearing chemo gloves? If so, are they sterile (for the port access) or do the RNs change gloves immediately after access, then give the vincristine, and then deaccess?
I know this may be more of an outpatient question, but since the question was raised here, I thought I would ask.
