I was wondering what other PICC teams are doing in regards to pending blood cultures and placing PICC lines? I was told it is not recommended to place them becuase if the cultures are positive then seeding of bacteria on the line can form and possible infect the line. Also what do other teams do if PICC placement is requested for frequent blood draws or testing such as CT Scans? I was told at an INS meeting that most teams do not consider this a viable indication but I do not know what the next step would be. Thanks for any help!!
