Assigned Day for PICC Central line dressing changes vs every 7 day rotation

Does your facility have an assigned day for PICC line/ central line dressing changes or are they done every 7 days? Is there any literature out there that supports one way or the other? Thank you!!

We do weekly dressing changes

We do weekly dressing changes weekly on Thursday and prn in between.  I'm not aware of studies....we just believed it would help assure the procedure was done.  It has worked well, with all staff being very aware of the routine.
