INS acknowledges the plight of the public, our members and valued colleagues, as we work collectively to manage the many concerns
associated with COVID-19. Many are asking if INS is able to give “new guidance” regarding modification for adherence to the INS Infusion
Therapy Standards of Practice. While we are presently unable to recommend modifications to the established standards of practice (e.g.,
extend dressing change intervals, extend administration set change intervals, etc.), we recognize the challenges many are facing due to the
limited number of caregivers and the scarcity of supplies.
When experiencing scarcity or depletion of PPE and other health care supplies, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, each organization must
determine the best alternative practices in order to ensure safest care for the patient and protection for the caregiver.
