It is certain that picc line is inserted afer blood culture becomes negative.
What about midline?
Team requires often midline for difficult vein and pt still has positive blood culture.
Even thoug midline is considered peripheral, due to the long dwell , I would like to educate our team with certain rules based on evidence.
And Some ( physicians) believe that putting midline is okay after some certain doses of antibiotics ( like 3-4 doses?).
Do we have any published, and agreed rule about midline insertion with positive blood culture ?
