    Port a cath maintenance

    My mom is coming form Brazil to stay some months with me and my kids. She has to have her port a cath flushed during this time (she will stay about 4 months). Where can he have it flushed in Orlando?

      I tried to look up an answer to your question with no luck. Here are some things I know: only certain nurses are allowed to access a port so I would call a cancer clinic to see if she can come in there for a port flush. I did a search on "cancer clinics Orlando, FL" and a lot of places came up, so I would choose one close to me and call them and ask what is required.

      Enjoy the visit with your mom! I imagine you don't get to see her nearly as often as you would like with her living in Brazil.

      LiveWithCancer is on it with that, just call up your local treatment center and explain what you need, I'm sure they will accommodate you.
