Our BMT unit has recently been trialing the site scrub. They are using the product on both the needless connector and well as the cath hub when the needless connecter is changed. There has been a few cases where the needless connector and the hub a "fusing" together. I suspect that the cause is due to not allowing the etoh to completely dry as well as possible tightening of the needless connector when scubbing (most individuals are right handed) thus they would naturally twist the the site scrub in a clockwise direction (righty tighty, lefty loosey)
Has anyone else seen this phenomenon?
Just a side note! Hi Lynn how are things in Georgia. Salt Lake is really cold and if this weather does not change I may take you up on your inviation to visit warmer weather.
Happy Holidays to all.
