I work in an infusion clinic associated with our hospital.
We often see daily antibiotic patients. These patients usually have a PICC line.
We are not open on the weekends, so these patients are see as out patients on our med surge floor. I just found out today that they save the tubing and reuse it for that patient. Cleaning a port and piggybacking the end in until the next day, reconnecting that to the PICC.
They say this is ok because tubing is good for 72 hrs.
