I was alerted by a floor nurse in our facility that a patient had been admitted with a midine. The patient had a midline catheter alright, but it was located in her right lateral lower forearm!!! Anybody ever hear of this?? It was inserted at the nursing home facility she was at,but we didn't feel comfortable leaving it in (even though it was running ok). Anyone have any experience with this? All the literature I have researched states a midline should be placed in the antecubital so it is at least in a larger diameter vein.
