IV Team in Dallas?

  1. 0 Hi all,

    Can anyone in the Dallas Metroplex tell me which hospitals in the area still have IV teams?

    I'm a former ER nurse (7 years pt care, Adult as well as Pedi ER experience) and have spent the last 4 in the ER Clinical Informatics world, but am looking at going back to clinical. I've always LOVED starting IV's and was always a "go-to" nurse for the difficult starts. This would be something I would love to do full time, but I don't know much about any of the hospitals in the area (I've never practiced in a Dallas hospital---moved here from out of state), let alone if they have IV teams or not. I could blindly apply to the hospitals, of course, but I'd like to hear anyone's inside info, if you are willing to share.

    Thanks so much in advance!

    Darn, wish someone would have replied! I'm thinking about moving to Dallas and I would love to join an IV team. Statring IV"s and infusions is what I like to do also.

    I believe Harris Methodist in Fort Worth has IV teams... In addition, MCOA, or Medical Center of Arlington which is between Dallas and FW, also has a IV team.
