ANNA Updates Venous Needle Dislodgement and Access-Bloodline Separation Resources

Serious hemodialysis therapy complications are venous needle dislodgement and access-bloodline separation. In 2020, ANNA brought together a task force to update the information and resources developed by the 2012 ANNA Venous Needle Dislodgement Task Force along with the development of additional resources, if needed. The 2020-2021 ANNA Venous Needle Dislodgement Task Force conducted a literature review, requested information from ANNA members, and tested taping techniques. The July/August 2021 issue of the Nephrology Nursing Journal features an article that discusses the results of the literature review, information requests, and taping technique testing, and provides resources on venous needle dislodgement and access-bloodline, including a risk assessment tool, educational materials, and practice recommendations.
