What you can look at is the nurses documentation if they hang a medication and it is to run for say over one hour; they should document in their notes that they started it at Time A and stopped at time B, noting if there were any problems with infusion or if it infused without problems. From my background of nursing, when we go back to a patients room and their IV medications have ended, I document the time I take down the medication bag; now the machines they use for their infusions, does it have a read out of the times started and stopped? Something within the device they can go in and look at the infusion time etc, rate etc.
Not sure if this will help but this is what I encountered when I worked in nursing.
