We are looking at changing our standard for getting up to void frequently with our pediatric patients receiving chemo. Our current standard (which we have done it this way for 30+ years) is to have them get up and void every 2-3 hours when receiving chemo and 48 hours after the last dose. We do it for any kid that is receiving any type of chemo. We are looking at changing it to getting up and voiding every 3-4 hours for chemos that are harder on the kidneys/bladder and/or excreted in the urine (cyclophos, high dose methotrexate, etc). With chemos like Vincristine, etc. we won’t get them up and they can void when they need to. Our kids in diapers we will continue to change every couple of hours since it can be hard on their skin. I was curious what other institutions do and/or if they had any policies/standards regarding this. Thanks!
