Hi All -
I need your opinion. A group of us is working on a project for our BSN Nursing Research class. It is an evidence based practice paper about the use of chlorhexidine vs povidone iodine for disinfecting the skin prior to venipuncture. We have very limited clinical experience on which to draw (Med/Surg I and psych) so we thought you might share with us your experience.
Do you have a choice on which you use?
If so, which do you prefer and why?
Does the hospital make the choice and if so which one is recommended?
My part of the project is to write about "the current situation in my clinical area." As this is obviously not a true research study, I am hoping to gather some real life opinons from you all.
Thanks for your time and expertise!
