We are a 3 member Vascular Access Team in a 200 bed community hospital. (1 full time, 2 part time 1perdiem on-call only w/ full time ER) We are presently staffing 7AM-7PM, 7days a week. It is greatly affecting our performance and proficiency when we are called back in usually uneccessarily. Does anyone have any clear cut criteria or an algorithm that we can share with the Nursing Supervisors?
