We were having issues also awhile back and we re educated because staff weren’t fully engaging the Spiros. There is a way to remove the Spiro if you pull the floating collar up and pull hard. The C clip will help prevent this however you still have to put the Spiro on correctly…….

What closed system transfer device do you use on the end of your lines for chemotherapy?
We currently use spiros and have had multiple issues with disconnecting and chemo spills.
What do you use at your institution? If you use spiros, have you had an issue with disconnections?
