SASH Method

  1. Clean the area where your supplies will be placed 1 with an alcohol pad or other disinfectant

Scrub Times: 

  • Site Scrub: 10 second scrub and 5 second dry
  • Alcohol Pad: 15 second scrub and 15 second dry 

Note: When medicines are no longer being given through the line(s), saline will no longer be needed. Heparin flush only in each line every 24 hours.


If you have questions about how to flush your child’s line with saline or heparin,
please talk to a line care nurse, your home infusion nurse or the nursing
coordinator. Call 901-595-3300 or toll-free 1-866-2STJUDE (1-866-278-5833).
