Our nurses at Cavendish Homecare are trained to the highest standard. We ensure they are kept up-to-date, knowledgeable, and well-equipped when caring for our clients. As part of our ongoing commitment to both our nurses and clients we undertake a number of courses internally.
Cavendish Homecare has recently ran a Central Line theory training course with Adriana Hogan and Stephanie Silva.
A central line (or central venous catheter) is like an intravenous (IV) line, it is much longer than a regular IV and goes all the way up to a vein near the heart or just inside the heart. Access site centrally inserted central venous catheters are primarily placed via the internal jugular vein, subclavian vein, or femoral vein. Alternative insertion sites include the external jugular vein, cephalic vein, and proximal great saphenous vein. A patient can get medicine, fluids, blood, nutrition through or even chemotherapy via a central line. It also can be used to draw blood.
Prior to any central line care, it is important to observe the surrounding area for any signs of complications and to complete a short assessment.
