Last minute staffing changes prevented me from going to SVT meeting this
year. Hope to make next one.
Thanks for the input on dressing removals.

Missed you at the last SVT meeting. We remove dressings and replace as
long as they are not the initial surgical dressing. I think our nurses
would rather we did it, saves them time. We keep ace wraps and tape on
hand. If we have an initial dressing, we call the physician and we either
leave it in place and duplex what we can, or call the nurse to remove it.
We have even had the ortho guys come and remove casts,etc. just for our
study. No policy to send to you. We do not remove Una boots.
