What does your hospital require after a Picc line adjustment? Do you always have to get a repeat cxr? We just started a new picc program at our hospital. When we recieved training we were taught that you can pull back up to 3 cm without getting a repeat cxr. Today we put in a picc and it was too deep so we pulled back 2 cm. The radiologist read the x-ray about an hour later and had a fit that we let the patient go without a repeat cxr. I'm wondering if there is some lititure or guidlelines that would apply to this situation.
