Abstract

Knowledge about the three different types of IV connectors (negative, positive, and neutral) is imperative to cancer care as specific and distinct interventions can help prevent occlusions and catheter-related bloodstream infections that can lead to increased morbidity with infections and loss of treatment time and mortality. Nurses have responsibilities associated with nursing research, education, and evidence-based practice that should support the outcomes of best patient care when using IV connectors.
