Hello all:

     Does anyone have a written protocol for allowing nurses or other staff to remove sutures/staples?  In particular, do your physicians have to evaluate the patient before, after, or both?

     We are trying to expediate the process of having these patients processed, but want to ensure that no sutures are removed before their time.
