Hemodialysis central venous catheter scrub – the -hub protocol … part 7

Central venous catheter 2

 

Antiseptic use and selection

Bloodline disinfection

When accessing the line, disinfecting the ends of the sterile blood lines is not required if care has been taken not to contaminate the ends of the blood lines (ie  through careful aseptic technique). Blood lines can become contaminated during connections and disconnections, as well as during the priming process. Contact with contaminated prime waste in prime buckets that have not been properly cleaned and disinfected or through backflow from waste handling ports must be avoided. Disinfecting the bloodlines does not address this issue
