    We are in the process of finalizing our handouts and then I could share them with you if you wish.  I am wondering what you do about children receiving Thiotepa?  Excluded?  Also patients receiving radiation and those with GVHD rash?  Thanks, Deb

    Hi all,

    For those of you who use CHG wipes on patients with central lines, do you have a handout or any type of written education you give to parents? We are looking into making one, but would be nice to not recreate the wheel if you are willing to share. We are having some issues with compliance and are hoping that more education will help parents be more receptive. Thanks in advance!
