Hi Megan!

We run paper strips and store them for 4 years UNLESS we cannot verify a true-solid-complete “e-strip” (like if there was downtime or if the patient wasn’t admitted quickly yet paper was running), then they are kept forever in storage. Downtime is paper and again kept forever. These “forever strips” as we call them are specially labeled with bright pink stickers that say “Paper fetal strip is to be stored FOREVER- do not destroy”.
Hope this helps!
