Administering Heparin

Seven days worth of supplies.

Trash generated by one day's infusion of antibiotic

I am amazed how much trash is generated by Chad's daily antibiotic infusion: three saline syringes, wrappers and lids; two heparin syringes, wrappers and lids; six alcohol wipettes and wrappers; the actual medication "onion bulb." Plus, Multiply by 28 days (4 weeks). Add in the actual PICC line "port" changes, the dressing changes once a week by the visiting nurse... I'm amazed by the amount of JUNK that is generated!
