24 hour PICC team

We are an in-house IV/PICC team. We are being asked to look into 24 hour PICC line placement. We currently stop placing PICC lines at 7PM. I am looking for any facilities that are currently placing PICC lines 24 hours that are not contracted from outside the facility. You may email me at [email protected]

thank you,

As of Jan.1, our PICC team has started taking call to provide 24 hour coverage. We have someone in house Mon.-Fri. 0600-2030 and Sat-Sun.07-1930. We were asked to provide this 24 hour coverage because our sepsis bundle includes CVP monitoring and SVo2 monitoring. We have a decision tree that our supervisor follows in regards to calling us in during the noc. Email me privately if you would like more [email protected].
