Identifing veins used for access

In our electronic medical record, we currently name the vein in which we insert vascular access devices, including PIV's.  I have been asked if this is still current and relevant.  I don't see any supporting information about this in the newest version of the INS Standards of Practice.  I have heard in previous lectures that this was a very good practice, but I can't find anything in print.  Any suggestions? Thoughts?

Thank you in advance for your responses.
