If I use the Prevantics® Device Swab product, will I still need to use an alcohol impregnated cap?
Not necessarily. If clinicians follow all existing infection prevention and control measures, such as hand hygiene, use of personal protective equipment, use of chlorhexidine-based skin antisepsis, etc. then the use of an alcohol impregnated cap may not be clinically indicated. This would be evaluated by ongoing surveillance of HAI rates.
