I recently got into a discussion with my clinical instructor regarding the best practice for cleaning with an alcohol wipe and she told me to research evidence based practice and get my answer. I have searched for 2 days for scholarly, valid, updated sources and still cannwipesI a clear answer to my question! Here is the question and any feedback, links, or advice is greatly appreciated:When using an alcohol prep pad to clean a port, injection site, etc, are you able to reuse the same wipe? Example-if wiping port to attach flush, then wiping port to attach med?I have been told that as long as the pad is still wet then it is still able to rid bacteria and can be reused. But I was also told that I must get a new alcohol wipe for every cleaning, no matter if it's still wet. I just want to make sure that I am being safe and that I have valid reasoning for doing what I am doing!
