    We do not use Alcohol Impregnated caps in our Outpatient clinic or the home setting. We follow the CHA Hem-Onc CLABSI Bundle with Cap changes.

    At your institution, do you utilize alcohol impregnated caps (i.e Swab Caps or Curos Caps) in the outpatient setting?  Do you have patients utilize them in the home setting?

    Thank you!
