Antibiotic impregnated catheters recommended for lines that are anticipated to remain 7 days or more.

This designee must stop the procedure if the appropriate steps are not followed. If the patient is conscious, the designee will stop the procedure by saying “Break Scrub”: indicating to the clinician that the bundle has not been followed and the procedure must be stopped. If the clinician does not stop the procedure, the RN is to notify the nurse manager. Find this checklist on the Clinician’s Order site at
