The Benefits of Curos™ Disinfecting Port Protectors:
In a high pressure environment when time is of the essence, it is human behaviour to rush through essential steps. epic3 guidelines recommend scrubbing the hub for a minimum of 15 seconds, yet 54% of IV hubs are not cleaned for the recommended time. If decontamination is not performed correctly there is a risk of microbiological contamination when the port is accessed. And with 20% of healthcare associated infections related to catheter-related blood stream infections, Curos Disinfecting Caps are critical in reducing this, as well as saving clinical time and money!
