Nurses who recently visited our Web site answered this question: Do you use chlorhexidine for skin antisepsis prior to central venous catheter (CVC) insertion?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends cleaning the skin with a 2% chlorhexidine-based preparation, although tincture of iodine, an iodophor, or 70% alcohol are also acceptable.
