Central Line Insertion Checklist

Virginia Mason Medical Center
Seattle, Washington, USA
 
Implementing a central line checklist at the time of insertion will help to ensure that all processes related to central line placement are executed for each line placement, thereby leading to a reliable process. Nurses should be empowered to supervise the preparations using the checklist prior to line insertion and to stop the process if necessary. This checklist includes a list of activities that are considered standard work before, during, and after the procedure, as well as a safety checklist.
 
*NOTE: The checklist is particularly effective if used in conjunction with the Daily Goals Worksheet that can be completed during daily rounds on the patient.
