Nursing guidelines recommend swabbing needlefree connectors before every access to minimize the risk of bacterial contamination.1
Needlefree IV connectors play an important role in the fight against CRBSI, but nursing guidelines still suggest that connectors be swabbed before each access. Unfortunately, swabbing technique and compliance with these policies may vary and visual confirmation of connector disinfection may be difficult.
SwabCap’s proven disinfecting technology can be an important element in your efforts to minimize infection risks and improve swabbing compliance.
SwabCap’s patented disinfecting cap design has been shown to help enhance the barrier to bacterial ingress while helping you standardize disinfection protocols.2 Unlike other caps that only disinfect upon application, SwabCap continues to disinfect the connector surface for up to seven days until removed.
