    ​Good Morning,
    We created hot pink stickers that will be placed on the central line dressing as well as the pump itself that says “DO NOT TOUCH! Call Pediatrics” with our number/extension on it. We also have a bright green sticker that says “chemotherapy” and a bright yellow sticker that says “DO NOT FLUSH” and both of these are placed both above and below the pump on the tubing. The parents will also be educated to not let anyone besides the peds hem/onc touch the pump or line.
    Hope this helps!
    Ashley

    Thank you for sharing that idea.  We will make one and do the same.

    Our institution is preparing to open this study and we are in the midst of a similar discussion. We are going to place a sticker on the pump itself with this warning.

    What type of education does your hospital have in place for Blinatumomab infusions at home?  I’m referring more to education that a parent could provide to an outside facility/caregivers if an emergency came up and they didn’t come to our hospital.  Several of us got to talking about (worst-case scenario) if the patient got in an accident, couldn’t speak, and had blina running.  Is there some type of bracelet, etc. the patient could wear to alert the first responders to NOT flush that line or for outlying facilities as well, in case a parent happened to not be with them?

    Thanks!
