Reading x-rays for picc tip location

I would like picc placement RNs in our facility to be able to read the x-rays for tip placement. I need data for management. If you practice in Washington State and read x-rays, would you please e-mail me at [email protected]. and give me the name of you facility?

Thank you,  Laura

"Reading" a chest xray means

"Reading" a chest xray means that you are looking for pathology, which is medical practice. So you are actually seeking management's authorization for your nurses to become competent in assessing a chest xray for catheter tip location. Using the correct terminology will produce better results and prevent your project from getting shut down early because of legal concerns. What type of data are you looking for?
