At a recent INS meeting there was a discussion on the subject of changing Sterile gloves DURING the PICC insertion process.
Specifically "after acquiring access but prior to touching/trimming the PICC before threading"
I would like to continue the discussion in this forum and ask if there is any evidenced-based information on the subject
Thank you in Advance for your thoughts
