Maintaining Staff RN IV Skills

Ther is a discussion about all staff RN's maintaining a minimun number of three IV sticks per year with documentation. 

The question is should this be a hospital policy or not?  We do have an IV team who do the PICC's and difficult access. A search of the Standards of Care and Maine Board of Nursing did not help.

Opinions and what is done at your facility would help
