    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.
