When a nurse accessed my Port-a-Cath it was very difficult for her to get accessed. When it was being removed to be able to leave to go home a remark was made no wonder it was hard to get accessed it was either put in backwards or sideways. A nurse then told me i would need to go have my Port-a-Cath flushed. I was in ICU with double pneumonia. I want to know did the nurses think the Port was no longer working at that time and no blood draw back would show up? So, therefore they did not want to be blamed for anything. In the end i did have to have a new Port-a-Cath put in because the surgeon could not get it to draw back blood and I had never had that issue before.
