    We secure port a caths with a transparent dressing for CLABSI prevention for all ports that will be accessed for more than just a few minutes.

    What do you use in an out pt setting for short term port a cath securement (an hour or so: ie vinc and dox, labs only, etc). Do you cover with complete occlusive dressing or do you use papertape or other securment to help protect skin for these short term accesses.
