Just wanted to know how your protocols, practice, or experience is regarding central lines. What type of documentation do you get or expect after the line is inserted in order to safely start using it? Is it any different when it is a central line or a peripherally inserted central line PICC?
Do you get documentation about which vessel was used, the size of the catheter, how much heparin was used, and so on in both types of central lines? Do they write an order saying, "line ready to used" in either case and whether it is inserted at especial procedures department or at the bedside?
Thank you for your feedback,
