    Good Afternoon All,

    We are a children’s hospital within a hospital and wanted to reach out to see what other children hospitals are doing. We currently change our needleless connectors and IV tubing Q96 hours routinely. The adult side just changed the policy change everything Q7 days. Would love to know what everyone else is doing.

    Thank you
