Â I have been telling everyone at my hospital about the new evidence based practice concerning the 15 second scrub, and have been getting some questions that I hope you all can help me with!
When you scrub the access port do you scrub between every access?
Ex: Prior to access, after saline flush that was used to check for blood return,Â proir to attaching secondary set, prior to removing secondary set, as well as in between the saline and heparin flush?
Thank you for any information you may provide!
