Hemodialysis central venous catheter scrub – the -hub protocol … part 6

Central venous catheter 2

 

Antiseptic use and selection

Handling catheter hubs

Catheter hubs should always be handled aseptically. Once disinfected, the catheter hubs should not be allowed to touch nonsterile surfaces. This might be best performed by holding them until the antiseptic dries. During this time, the staff member performing the procedure should also ensure that the catheter remains clamped.

When disinfecting catheter hubs, clean, nonsterile gloves can be used if aseptic technique is maintained.
