We have a core group of nurses trained to do central line repair. There is always at least one nurse per shift with this competency. We do not have a vascular access team. We have also had a couple recent incidents of where a line was repaired a few time because of leaking after repair. Would also be interested to hear what others are doing for line repair. Are line repairs done is patient room or in a procedure room? Do you use sterile gowns and drapes for the procedure? Thanks for asking this question!

Hello all, I am wondering how other educators approach line repair competency? Do your bedside nurses do it? If so, is it one shift? Vascular Access Team? CNS? Do you have a few folks scattered that maintain competency/ We recently had a patient that had her line repaired 3 times due to leaking after the repair. Thanks.
