Nursing interventions related to vascular access infections



Nursing interventions related to vascular access infections



Advances in Renal Replacement Therapy 3(3): 218-221



Vascular access infection is a common cause of the loss of a vascular access. Education of both nursing staff and patients is essential for preventing vascular access infections and for treating infections early. The use of strict aseptic technique is essential when providing vascular access care. Central venous catheters require special assessment and care. Dialysis staff can have a critical role in prevention and early treatment of vascular access infections.
