Site/Device Care and Maintenance – User comments

carenmaintThe Care and Maintenance program is highly recommended for anyone who cares for or maintains PICCs or any central device. Insertion of a peripherally inserted central catheter is only half the battle. PICCs must be aseptically cared for and maintained if they are to be of continued use throughout the entire prescribed therapy. Also, proper care and maintenance allows for early detection of any complications that may arise.
