    They are implementing new policy here for the CHG baths for everyone with a Central Line as part of the CVL Bundle Policy.  This change is fairly recent and I have not heard of any issues, questions, or concerns from staff or patients and families.

    Our PICU is currently working to transition to doing CHG baths on patients once a day.  I know BMT units tend to do this but does any hospital do these types of baths on oncology units??
