We’ve recently implemented closed system transfer devices at our hospital. We use a combination of Spiros on the patient end/chemo syringe and chemo clave/chemo lock on the medication bag side. We have done the set up with a set preservation concept, using the tubing for subsequent days. Is anyone else doing this-keeping chemo tubing for subsequent days/doses? Or are you still using tubing only for 1 day/dose? If you are using a saline flush bag, how long do you keep this bag for? I appreciate any information you can provide. Thank you!
