Anything that touches the CVC exit site of the CVC and anything that goes into the CVC must be sterile.
The following guidelines are helpful in preventing infection:
Immediately clamp the CVC between the hole and your chest. If necessary, pinch or fold it over to clamp it. Cover the hole or crack with sterile gauze.
Notify the Dialysis Nurse or go to the Emergency Room.
