Mobile PICC Line Services
Mobile PICC Line Services typically include only Ultrasound Guided PICCs, Midlines, Extended Dwell PIVs, and PIVs and such Mobile PICC Line Services companies claim to be specialists. We are more than Mobile PICC Line Specialists as our approach to comprehensive Vascular Access Services at the bedside is different from other Mobile PICC Line Services providers. We are Vascular Access Specialists providing standard and advanced line placement, education, training, infection control and prevention, and full administrative support services, including a 24/7 Vascular Access Support team with an on-call clinician. We refer to our nurses as clinicians due to the training we provide and the experience that they bring to the bedside every single day. We bring our same hospital quality care to Skilled Nursing Facilities, Surgical and Outpatient Centers, Hospice Care, and At-Home.
Vascular Wellness nurse clinicians are Vascular Access Board Certified (VABC), insured, skill-verified, and salaried W2 employees, meaning that we can ensure quality, reliability, and consistent services as compared to a 1099 contractor pay per procedure model (plus, in some cases, “performance” bonuses) used by most Mobile PICC Line Services companies. The pay per procedure model may create some adverse incentives for speed at the bedside versus holistic medical care helping to ensure the placement of the right line at the right time, the first time.
Holistic medical care means talking to the patient, addressing questions and fears, and performing a comprehensive medical review. Prior to providing any Vascular Access procedure, the Vascular Wellness clinician reviews the patient’s medical record, including history and lab reports, and independently verifies and confirms the doctor’s order. If our clinician disagrees with the prescribing doctor, the clinician will consult with the doctor. Our clinicians have earned the trust of many doctors, and such doctors will defer to the clinician’s recommendation by ordering a “consult” as compared to a specific line, which is not done with a typical Mobile PICC Line Services company. Patient safety and vein preservation are critical – which is why a holistic, comprehensive evaluation and Advanced Lines are significant.
In states where nurses are permitted, Vascular Wellness clinicians can provide immediate X-Ray Clearance of lines when tip confirmation is not available or appropriate and X-Ray confirmation must be used. This saves money, time, and coordination with a Radiologist or other doctor and enables the lines to be used immediately to avoid delaying treatment. Quicker therapy leads to better outcomes.
Vascular Wellness uses top rated and hospital preferred supplies from Becton Dickinson, formerly Bard (BD). Superior supplies and services help mitigate the potential for poor outcomes such as bad placement, clotting, infections, and other adverse events.
Vascular Wellness provides policy and procedure consulting and documentation, EHR/CHR Vascular Access configuration, Vascular Access services reimbursement coding consulting and support, infection control support, and pediatric vascular access. We are the true Vascular Access Specialists, and much more than a Mobile PICC Line Services company claiming to be specialists.
Mobile PICC Line Insertion Services
Mobile PICC Line Insertion Services that include only PICCs, Midlines, and PIVs, if done correctly, can generally offer adequate vascular access on a transactional basis; however, these Mobile PICC Line Insertion Services are limited in certain clinical situations and may not be appropriate such as when the patient has or likely will have kidney and renal failure, has or likely will have Deep Vein Thrombosis (or DVT), or had a mastectomy. In such situations, other vascular access devices that enable vascular access, such as Small Bore Internal Jugular Lines, Mid-Thigh Femoral Lines, and Axillary Lines as well as Large Bore Lines including Vas Caths for Dialysis and Quad Lumen Lines, provide additional tools to enable vascular access. We refer to these Small Bore and Large Bore Lines as Advanced Lines, and while Vascular Wellness excels in the placement of these Advanced Lines, very few vascular access nurse clinicians are able to even offer or provide such lines as part of their limited Mobile PICC Line Insertion Services, making such Mobile PICC Line Insertion Services incomplete. Over the years, we have learned that because other Mobile PICC Line Insertion Services companies do not offer Advanced Lines, in certain cases, those company nurses will not do a detailed medical history review or will ignore such medical history so that they can place the line, claim success, and get paid, at the extreme frustration of the doctor knowing that the patient’s life may have been shortened by such behavior. Our W2 salaried employees’ compensation is not based on speed or productivity, and our focus is on client and patient service.
