About 6 months ago, my facility started using these antimicrobial PICC lines, and we've definitely seen a decrease in CLABIs. However, our population(Onc) has a continuing issue with low platelets and one patient's line has been continually oozing blood. Hemcon patches and pressure dressings haven't helped. I've heard that these PICCs also have anticoagulant. Any idea why? Kind of defeats the purpose if you have to open up the dressing every 48 hours because it's bleeding.
