I would like to survey the forum. We have been asked to find out the following:
These questions pertain only to nurse or RN vascular/PICC teams.
1. Does your hospital provide 7 day a week vascular/picc team coverage?
2. Does your PICC team provide 24 hour a day coverage?
3. Does your facility consider PICC lines to be an emergent or stat procedure?
4. Does your Vascular/PICC team place non tunnelled CVC's in either the Interal or external jugular ?
5. Does anyone know of or have a Vascular team who places tunnelled CVC's?
6. Please indicate the name & size of your facility & whether or not it is a trauma center.
If you would like you can forward your responses directly to me. [email protected]
Thank you in advance for your participation!
