Hi all....I have a pt who has a severe nickel allergy and has required multiple lengthy courses of antibiotics via PICC line--usually continuous infusions of Vanco and Pip/Taz. She would like to have a port installed but with her nickel allergy, having a classic Huber in situ for weeks is not an option.
Has anyone heard of an alternative material for Hubers or another type of access device? (the only metal she is not allergic to is pure silver)
