Ok some thoughts please. I have never heard of getting a chest xray after PICC removal even if you dont have original PICCmeasurements. We always had a physicians order, checked the integrity of the catheter after removal, documented length. I am not in a hospital setting, but worked in home infusion for years and this was never policy to get an xray. Isnt that an unecessary xray? Also, I cant find any place that says we should do this. INS says nothing about an xray. HELP!
