Do any hospitals out there have policies that indicate a new PICC after multiple doses of cathflo? By multiple doses I mean an effective dose one day and then another dose a few days later for a reclotted PICC and on and on..... We are discussing PICCs, biofilm, CLABs and and are considering implementing a maximum Cathfo dose policy-would like to see what others in the World of PICC are doing.
Also who is responsible for declotting PICCs in your hospital-IV Team or unit nurses?
All answers are grealtly appreciated.
