CVC Health Care was founded to educate anyone who is involved with Vascular Access Devices. We want to provide everyone education on insertion, care and maintenance, removal and choosing the right device for the patient and the therapy ordered. Most importantly we want to teach prevention of complications. Achieving and maintaining a zero percent infection rate is everyones goal. Having a skilled team of health care providers, unique to your staffing needs, is key to success of vascular access programs. We are located in Lake Mills, WI and we want to teach all disciplines on vascular access devices. With all the different products on the market it is difficult to know what device the patient may have. Standardizing practice is an important process for improving outcomes and prevention of complications. With the financial challenges we face today in health care, we can achieve zero infection rates, but the challenge is to maintain zero. Having skilled staff in your facility has proven to reduce infection rates, reduce complications and improve patient satisfaction scores.
