IV Placements

Peripheral IV Placement, is an essential skill in nursing that does require skill and finese to master. A recent study found that on average, it requires 2.8 attempts by a practitioner to gain access.

Multiple attempts usually result in increase cost to the facility and increased morbidity of the patient. Epicc Vascular experienced nurses will always utilize ultrasound needle guidance to ensure a succesful IV placement.

3 Reasons to Use Us for IV Placements

(1) PRODUCTS: picc line manufacturer, picc companies can purchase lines from $60 to $150, the more expensive ones are advanced to the point that clotting of lines is greately reduced, this reduces cost and better for the patient, Epicc Vascular uses lines that are American made and more expensive.

(2) NURSES: Catheter Tip placement, final placement of the tip as reported on the radiologist report is due to the expertise of the picc line nurse using ultrasound guidance, an inexperienced nurse may easily cause mal positions, leading to intervention, delay of treatment, and additional x-rays to confirm final placement. Epicc Vascular nurses have all placed a minimum of 1000 piccs.

Not all Picc Line company’s are equal, while it may be profitable for these company’s to purchase the lowest priced Picc Lines on the market. A substandard Picc Line increases the likelihood of clotting, DVT’s, and possible infections. When a Picc Line malfunctions, you have no choice but to call and absorb additional costs to declot or replace the line. This is not good for the facility or for the patient.
