At our hospital , we have an almost zero infection rate when it comes to placing piccs. As for maximum sterile
barrier, we have an option of using the "throw away ", "very bulky" drapes that a certain company is supplying
us. The cost happens to be prohibative, the drape costs 3x as much as our sterile towels and other sterile drapes
that we use. Some of us also find the "throw away" drape very cumbersome to use. My question to all those
who practice maxium sterile barrier, what do you use?
