Idea Exchange: Give grieving owners space with a catheter extension set

When we place catheters in our euthanasia patients, we attach extension sets to the catheters. That allows us to administer the medications without hovering over the patients, and owners can be close to their pets during the final moments. We make sure to use a lot of flush to move the euthanasia solution through the line.
