IV Team coverage

Just a quick survey, how many IV Teams cover 7 days/ wk and holidays?

We currently are available 7a-7p, 7 days/wk and on call (without call pay) Thanksgiving,Christmas, and New Years.

We cover the other holidays.


Just 2 of us, so we don't do

We have PICC nurse
We have PICC nurse availability 24/7/365.  Our PICC nurses (6 of 9) are also our Resource Nurses - nurses who float all over the hospital and help out as needed.  They also do PICCs as well as most IV starts and many other tasks.  Once our Radiology department contracted with an outside service to provide 24 hour reading of xrays (done via the Internet) we were able to offer the service during the night shift - it's pretty rare but takes off some of the pressure to be done by 10 pm when our own radiologists go to bed!
