    The goal with vascular access devices is to provide a means to safely administer medications to a patient for the duration of required therapy. In order to do this, we must keep these vascular access devices functioning without occlusions, infections, or complications. There are specific steps clinicians can actively follow on a daily basis to reduce the risk of infections and complications, ensuring a higher degree of safety and positive outcomes for our patients.
