    We do not use tinted chloraprep for port access or dressing changes. We use clear chloraprep.

    Does anyone use tinted chloraprep for:

    1. Central line dressing change?

    2. Port access?

    Does anyone have evidence to suggest the use of clear CHG prep vs. tinted for these procedures?

    Thank you.
