Is anyone still administering Oxaliplatin peripherally and if so how often is patient experiencing phlebitis issue which then requires a central line. Our experience is nursing suggests all oxaliplatin patients should have a central line due to this very issue even if a CADD pump is not part of the treatment plan. I am just curious of other experiences as we try to convince our providers.
