Abstract

 

Nurses who recently visited our Web site answered this question: In patients with central venous catheters (CVCs) in place, is the necessity for that catheter reviewed on a daily basis?

 

To reduce the risk of infection, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement recommends daily review of central lines and prompt removal of unnecessary lines. Visit http://www.nursingcenter.com/poll to answer our monthly survey question and view results from other surveys.
