We are fighting a battle with one our MD's who is insisting on infusing Gentamycin via Midline. Our team has taking a stand on infusing via PICC, based on pH. Pharmacy is not backing us up. What is everyone else out there doing (if you are still using Midlines)?
I am ready to pull the plug on Midlines, since MD's seem to think they are the solution to prevent all the complications associated with PICCs and they are really only for a very small number of people.
Thanks for your input in advance!
