  • 1.  Red blood cell exchange

    Posted 13 days ago
    We work in a Hematology Oncology Clinic delivering chemo/bio therapy. Our hospital is trying to have us perform apheresis red blood cell exchange. We have an apheresis center that is staffed by RN's. The RN's there don't want to learn how to access ports nor will they give IV fluids or pain meds. They want to just to the exchange. Does anyone have a SOP/policy in there institution regarding this procedure?
