    A code brown!


    We change everything:  caps, dressing, tubing


    We have not routinely started ABX as most are on them already

    Hi all,

    I would like to know if other hospitals have developed a set cleaning guideline when stool accidentally lands on IV tubing/caps.
    Any information would be helpful. Thank you!
