After 2 years working in an ICU, I have just changed to a job in an outpatient dialysis center.
The care provided to the central lines in this center is very different from what I learned in the ICU...
"Scrub the Hub" is a huge campaign against CVC infections and the like, so could anyone answer me this...?
The "hub" is... the cap on the end of the line (which is what they scrub at the dialysis center) or the portion of the end that interlocks with syringes and the like that is covered by the cap on the end of the line (which is the portion that I maintain is the "hub" which needs scrubbed!)
Any input greatly appreciated!!!
