dc.description.abstractTo the Editor: Since the introduction in the early 1990s of a needleless connector (NC) on vascular access devices to minimize the risk of needle stick injuries to healthcare workers, their use is now well established. Unfortunately, intermittent reports from facilities have shown an increase in bloodstream infections (BSIs) thought to be associated with NC use.
