Hello. I am researching the standards at other facilities regarding
chlorahexadine bathing. Can you please help me with the questions
* Do you use chlorahexadine skin prep on pediatric patients
prior to surgery? If so, what age group?
* Do you use chlorahexadine skin care daily in your pediatric
population? If so, is this all your population or just PICU?

I was interested in starting an in-house vaccine barcoding system. We are
not currently using an EMR so this would be a standalone system for us to
track vaccine usage/inventory/etc.
I was wondering if anyone on the list has done something like this using the
1D barcode that is already on the vaccines. I know there is a current CDC
pilot program using some new 2D barcoding but other than that I have not
found much information online regarding the use of 1D barcode.
