• We assessed the in vitro colonization rate of stickers used for intravenous line identification after decolonization with chlorhexidine.
• We tested different manipulation procedures to evaluate colonization.
• Stickers were associated with higher counts of colony-forming units when manipulation was performed without 2% alcohol chlorhexidine disinfection.
This study assessed in an in vitro model the effect of 2% alcohol clorhexidine for the disinfection of stickers used for intravenous line identification. Nonadhesive sticker sides were associated with higher numbers of colony-forming units when manipulation was performed without 2% alcohol clorhexidine disinfection. Future clinical studies are needed to validate these data and design policies for daily sticker disinfection.
