A question to the group:
It is our practice to use a new tubing and a bag for the newly placed central catheter. Recently I was questioned by our staff if this is an evidenced based practice. I tried to find any reference and have not found yet. I would like to know how other hospitals are dealing with this issue? Are there any evidence based reference?
