I am the IV Therapy Coordinator for a 4 person IV/PICC team. We are in house for IV issues and PICC placements 7 days a week from 8am-5pm. There is a Therapist on call when we are not in house. We have an issue with what constitutes criteria for after hour call in for PICC placements. The physicians think that PICCs should be placed 24 hours a day and the Interventional Radiologist don't want to come in after hours, but they expect us to come in and "try" to place each and every PICC. Does anyone have written criteria that would justify placing an after hour PICC?
