As RN's on Picc Teams most of us start piv's ,access/deaccess port-a-caths, declott central lines and troubleshoot.
If we are going toward being Vascular Access Specialists I don't think we need to be worried about radiologly techs or
respiratory therapists taking over our jobs. So my question is , Is it in their scope of practice[rad. techs and resp. therapists]
to start piv's or access/deacces port-a-caths etc, etc.? Also,any ideas on the "future" of Picc Teams?
