PATTERNS AND PREDICTORS OF SHORT-TERM USE OF PERIPHERALLY INSERTED CENTRAL CATHETERS, A MULTI-SITE PROSPECTIVE STUDY

Background: Guidelines for peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) recommend avoiding insertion if the anticipated use is 5 or fewer days.  However, short-term PICC use is common in hospitals. We sought to identify patient-, provider- and [...]
