I recently attended our FLAVAN meeting in Orlando. I was very pleased with the event and speakers and the information recieved. I meant to ask Marcia Ryder a question and did not get the chance. I think I may have heard someone hint on the answer there so I will post it.
I heard some mention of a double skin prepping prior to PICC lines; some kind of arm cleansing then a sterile wrap and then routine prepping???? or maybe just pre cleansing with soap and water and then our routine prep.
I have done a literature search and cant seem to find it. I find articles of hers but not specific to that process.
Thank you in advance, Gina Ward R.N.
