    We use DualCaps (I feel like it is the better product on the market with a great luer lock connection and really saturated with alcohol).

     

    No choking issues yet (have had almost 5 years) and up to the nurses discretion if he/she finds any in the patient bed, then all are removed

     

    Thanks,

    Mary Lynn

    We have had really good CLABSI rates at our hospital for the past 4 years.  We went 495 days with no CLABSI last year and now have had 3 within 6 months.  Our adult hospital uses Curos caps.  We would like to know how many pediatric hospitals routinely use the Curos caps.  Are you concerned with them being a choking hazard?  Do you use on all ages?  

    Thanks in advance,
    Kelly
