alchol lock for CVAD
Our Infection control MDS is considering the use of alcohol locking CVAD's for infection control.  I have of course heard of antibiotic locking lines, but not alcohol.  I am not finding any information on the topic.  Does anyone know anything about this practice?????Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Jane Dahl, ANM Vascular Access Nursing, Salem Hospital, Salem Or.
