Each year central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSIs) occur in the United States, resulting in thousands of deaths and billions of added cost to the US healthcare system.* Studies show that using “make-shift” methods such as plastic wrap, bio hazard bags, garbage bags and medical tape to keep PICC lines dry, can increase the risk of infection due to unreliability.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends using an impermeable water barrier to keep PICC lines dry as well as other sensitive areas when showering or bathing to prevent water exposure and reduce the risk of infections.
Our goal is to provide affordable quality products to reduce infection and improve patient care.
