We are needing additional PICC placement options. We have one bed in our Outpatient Infusion department and at times it is being used by a previously scheduled patient requiring a bed for therapy. We do not have additional rooms that can accomodate a bed, which means we often have to refuse an outpatient PICC placement requiring the patient to go to another facility for PICC placement.
Anyone out there using an outpatient infusion "chair" or other furniture to place PICC lines? I haven 't been able to find one with an arm attachment. Other thoughts? We have thought about using a surgical cart with an arm attachment.
Thanks for any input.
