AllPoints™ Dressing Change Systems

Two-part dressing change systems designed to efficiently address the application and removal of central line dressings in alignment with industry standards and device Instructions For Use.

Features

Consistency of Care

Having standardized supply carts or kits with all the necessary CVC insertion and care supplies and equipment in ‘ready to go’ locations saves health care personnel time and helps ensure that the correct supplies and equipment are used for all insertion and maintenance procedures.1

Two-step process

Each dressing change system is designed to assist clinicians in maintaining sterile technique by providing two distinct packets for removal and application of dressing.

Educate and Assist

The AllPoints™ Dressing Change Systems are designed with components sequentially arranged to follow clinical guidelines and manufacturers’ Intructions For Use (IFU) for central line dressing changes.

The sterile field is designed to accommodate a variety of workspace environments.

Visual Guide

A visual guide/checklist is included to educate and assist clinicians to track compliance to the procedure.

Consistency of Care

The AllPoints™ Dressing Change Systems are designed to meet the definition of central line bundles and to streamline the dressing change process based on industry standards of care.

GuardIVa Icon

GuardIVa® Antimicrobial Hemostatic Dressing*

CDC, Joint Commission, and SHEA recommend the use of a chlorhexidine sponge dressing for short-term catheters if rates of CLABSIs are not decreasing despite adherence to basic prevention measures.

Do not use the GuardIVa® dressing on patients with a known sensitivity to chlorhexidine gluconate. The use of chlorhexidine gluconate containing products has been reported to cause irritation, sensitization, and generalized allergic reactions. If any such reactions occur, discontinue use of the dressing immediately, and if severe, contact a physician.

StatLock Icon

StatLock® Stabilization Device

CDC, INS, Joint Commission, and ONS recommend the use of a sutureless stabilization device to reduce the risk of complications. Bard recommends that every PICC be anchored by the securement wings.

Purell Icon

Purell® Advanced Instant Hand Sanitizer (Gel)

CDC, INS, Joint Commission, and SCORCH recommend hand hygiene before and after touching an invasive device. INS further recommends hand hygiene before putting on or after removing gloves.

to Guidelines

American Society of Anesthesiologists

A checklist or protocol should be used for placement and maintenance of central venous catheters.2 Visual Guide/checklist

Center for Disease Control and Prevention

Use either sterile gauze or sterile, transparent, semipermeable dressing to cover the catheter site.3 Dressing
Use a sutureless securement device to reduce the risk of infection for intravascular catheters.4 StatLock

Infusion Nurses Society

Chlorhexidine solution (>0.5% chlorhexidine in alcohol solution) is preferred for skin antisepsis of VAD assessment, care, and dressing changes.5 ChloraPrep
Aseptic technique is adhered to during all aspects of VAD placement.6 Kit/System
Validate performance using well-designed forms or checklists that focus on objective, measurable assessment of the actual performance.7 Visual Guide/checklist
Store hand hygiene products in convenient locations at the point of use.8 Purell

The Joint Commission

Aseptic technique is recommended by the evidence-based guidelines for all instances of CVC insertion and care.9 Kit/System
Using a sutureless device is preferred to suturing the catheter to the skin; sutures disrupt the skin around the catheter site, which can lead to inflammation and increased levels of colonization.1 StatLock

Oncology Nursing Society

2% chlorhexidine gluconate is recommended for pre and post-insertion catheter care.10 ChloraPrep

The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America

A standardized competency assessment checklist should be used to assess and document competency of each individual performing CVC insertion and procedures related to care and maintenance (eg, dressing changes).11 Visual Guide/checklist
