DRAFT: Intravascular Access Devices Policy

Intravascular access devices are used in a variety of settings. They are used to provide a route for administering intravenous medications, fluids, blood products and nutrients and may be used for haemodynamic monitoring, short to long term intravascular access, renal therapies and blood specimen collection.

This draft policy outlines the minimum infection prevention and control requirements for intravascular access devices for NSW public health organisations. It has been developed for clinicians who insert, use/manage and remove devices, and for persons responsible for surveillance and control of infections in hospital, outpatient, and home healthcare setting.
