How does it work?
An operator and a monitor can assure compliance with and documentation of checklist elements at the site of the procedure during all central venous line insertions or rewires. The monitor verifies that the steps have occurred, immediately informs the operator/supervisor of deviations, & completes the checklist The Operator is the clinician placing the central line. The Supervisor is an experienced operator who is involved in training the operator in central line placement. The Monitor: an individual who is qualified to observe the procedure and watch for breaks in sterile technique. If a break in sterile technique is observed, the monitor asks the operator to repeat a portion of the procedure after correcting the observed break. Please identify a monitor for this line placement prior to the time out.
