PICC placed over a week ago. Patient spiked a temp on the 7th day after being reintubated for possible aspiration. BC were drawn, one set from PICC and one peripherally. PICC cultures positive for Streptococcus sp(not S. pyogenes, S. agalactiae, S. pneumo) but peripheral draw has shown no growth after 24 hours. Would you suspect confirmed line infection or false positive from contaminated connector? Physician wants line pulled, tip cultured, and new PICC placed. Would this situation benefit from redrawing BC from PICC since peripheral draw has grown nothing? This was a difficult placement and want to verify pulling the line would be prudent.
