I am reviewing the current AACN guidelines for PD for my hospital. They are stating that appropriate exchange procedure per current literature includes: Scrubbing the area from the catheter cap to the twist/roller clamp with antiseptic soaked gauze. (This is when a healthcare professional is performing the exchange.). IS this what you recommend? I do not see hospital procedure recommendations on your website.
