Over the last nine months, I have been working on a capstone project regarding PICC lines.
I would appreciate hearing from members from various regions of the county (and please identify where your are from) i.e., north, east, south, west, and central, along with members from other countries. What I am looking for specifically is: Are you using PICC lines? Has your use increased in the last two years? Who is inserting your lines--IR, PICC team, etc.? Have there been any changes in re-insertions or infection rates? How soon after admission do patients receive a PICC line? Do you have any particular assessment tool in use for PICC line candidates?
Thank you all so much for your input.
