We have a new manager of our team who used to put in picc lines > 10 yrs age and with out u/s. she believes piccs are nothing more than fancy iv lines, it should not take two people to place a line, and it should only take 3 successful picc insertions to become competent. HELP! what can i show her to tell her that it isn"s so. Is there anyplace i can get literature to show her the national standards, and how to manage a team the bestr way possible?
