INS 2011

The annual meeting of the Infusion Nurses Society attracted hundreds of nurses from all over the  world for  its May gathering in Louisville, Ky.  With Medicare no longer reimbursing for hospital-acquired infections such as  Central-line associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI’s), nurses were especially interested in new technologies to reduce these potential deadly infections.

One of the technologies drawing considerable attention was SwabFlush, from Excelsior Medical (a Dowling & Dennis client). SwabFlush combines the SwabCap disinfection cap for needleless IV Connectors with a flush syringe. More information at www.swabflush.com.
