PICCs under Fluro by Rad Nurse


I am a RN in IR at a local VA Hospital. I have completed the online PICC course by Bards. Does anyone know if I could get credentialed in placing PICCs under fluro and have a IR Physician spot check the film? If so how. Thanks...question.png

I am an IR RN and currently use fluoro to place piccs under guidance of our IR radiologists. We place the lines independently, a specials procedures xray tech fluoros for placement verification and the radiologist reads the films on PACS and dictates the report that it is ready for use. The only time the radiologist does the PICC is if we have complications or the patient requests. Honestly, we are better than the radiologists because we have done so many. :-)

We were also trained by Bard.
