Our mostly LTC,re-hab facility is getting more admits who have PICC lines.
Ive not had to care for patients with PICCs in the past and would appreciate any information you can give me about them,such as:
1. How do you maintain them?How do you prevent infection? Prevent them from obstructing? Prevent any adverse problems?
2. How do you administer drugs thru them?
3.Any thing you have learned about them you would like to share?
4.What never,ever do when caring for a PICC?
5.What you should always do when caring for someone with a PICC?
6.Any experience,info,tips, and dos and donts about PICCs
