Central Line Access

Central line access to administer medication and fluid volume replacement is a problem in Waynesboro Hospital’s critical care unit (CCU). Certain medications are very irritating to peripheral veins and are best administered through a central line. Patients who are critically ill often require many medications for an extended time, making them candidates for central lines instead of peripheral lines. Central lines are used long-term as intravenous accessible for these types of situations. An issue arises because Waynesboro Hospital has limited central line access due to the limited availability of physicians to place these lines..
