PICC consents

We are having a problem with PICC consents at our hospital and I was wondering how other PICC nurses are handling the consent issue. Currently we have to have a physician actually sign the consent form before we can place the PICC line. For most of the physicians it really is not much of a problem but we have a few that are making their voices heard because they do not want to sign a consent when they are not the person inserting the PICC line. Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.
