Hi Everyone, I am an RN on the IV team and have to do a preformance improvement project for school. My project is going to be a study to see if a tubing securement device with help maintain the integrity of the central line dressing. In our facility we are using a chlorhexadine impregnated tegaderm for our central line dressings. We find that our IJ dressings are only staying intact for a few days at a time and are rarely lasting the 7 days we would like them to. I believe that the problem is a combination of poor skin prep prior to the dressing being applied and/or the weight of the tubing/lines that is putting a strain on the line and causing the dressing to become unocclusive. I am just trying to find out a little bit about what other facilitys are doing or if they experience the same problems. do you use some type of securement device or what type of dressings are you using? Here is a link to the securement device we will be trialing. It is the tubing securement. We still suture our lines in. Thanks.
