We are updating and reformatting our PICC P&P and have been asked the following question......
"Do you have references regarding contraindications such as mastectomy. stroke side, pacer, dialysis etc.
We get demands from Residents & PAs insisting placement of PICCs on those patients and they want to see the EB references."
The Dialysis reference is easy but what about the other contraindications?
