Securing catheters, and keeping them secured, presents a challenge to nursing staff. Many factors must be considered; maintaining skin integrity, preventing dislodgment, minimizing infection risks, ease of use, and cost, to name a few. The intent of this document is to assist the nurse in exploring the risks and benefits of securement devices for the indwelling catheter so they can make the best decision for the patient.
