Abstract

In teaching hospitals, the majority of central venous catheters are placed by medical residents. No studies have examined residents' adherence to safe practices during these procedures. We conducted a survey to gather self-reported data on the techniques that internal medicine residents use when placing a central venous catheter to minimize their own risk of infection and their patients' risk of bleeding-related complications.
