    What is the best resource or guidelines for taking blood pressures and drawing bloods on patients, status post mastectomies, and lymph node dissection?

    i was at an Oncology Nursing Certification Class a few weeks ago and was told the recommendation is to never use the affected arm for BP or lab draws.  We have always practiced that in our facility.
