We describe two measures adopted in hemodialysis outpatient population in order to reduce Central Venous Catheter (CVC) related infections. The first is a nurse staff training in the field project and the second deals with the employment of chlorhexidine-impregnated dressing devices.

Abstract

We describe two measures adopted in hemodialysis outpatient population in order to reduce Central Venous Catheter (CVC) related infections. The first is a nurse staff training in the field project and the second deals with the employment of chlorhexidine-impregnated dressing devices. These actions were performed after high infection rates were observed through a dedicated register.
