Long Term Catheter QIA Logo

The Mid-Atlantic Renal Coalition/Network 5 is conducting a Vascular Access Project, Catheter Limit, to decrease long-term catheter (LTC) use rates (catheter in use > 90 days) among prevalent dialysis patients. Catheter limit was developed to achieve a Network reduction in the rate of long-term catheter use among prevalent patients in dialysis facilities that have a LTC rate >10%.
