    PICC Line Dressing change

    I think you’ve got the concept but your wording is still not quite correct and this could prove troublesome in the future. The insertion site is where the PICC enters the skin. I think that is what you are referring to as the “needle”. You pull the d...

    RNs Replacing Registered Respiratory Therapists?

    PICC Line Dressing change

    Never pulled out one but have replaced many pulled out by ED nurses who think they know more than the people who put them in. Do you place PICCS? If not, why are you even arguing with me? It makes no sense. Also, resulting to insults is telling. At ...
