Discuss a practice that was common in nursing that is no longer valid or acceptable, discuss why the practice

Discuss a practice that was common in nursing that is no longer valid or acceptable, discuss why the practice is no longer used and include some information on the procedure or practice has replaced it. I think reflection on this will illustrate the changing nature of nursing practice and of the evidence we use.
please include a link to the supporting evidence in your post. Answering this question is not required, but a response that illustrates a change based on EBP will net you one substantive reply for the week. Lisa

Places to look for EBP include Cochrane Library, National Guideline Clearing House and Joanne Briggs.
