Vascular Access Specialists
Vascular Access Specialists are critical members of a patient’s medical team because most therapy starts with vascular access. Vascular Wellness provides on-demand customized vascular access solutions addressing patients’ needs through standard and advanced line placement and infection prevention and control. These are merely a few of the reasons we are considered Vascular Access Specialists. Our vascular access services also include onsite education, training, and full administrative support services, including our 24/7 Vascular Access Support Team (VST). Our Vascular Access Specialists serve a multistate area, and, unlike other nursing companies that only place standard lines, our services also include advanced lines such as Dialysis Catheters (e.g., Acute/Temp Vas Caths and Tunneled Perm Caths), Tunneled Central Lines, Large Bore Quad Lumens, Internal Jugulars, Mid-Thigh Femorals, and Axillaries, for adult and pediatric patients. Our Vascular Access Specialists are Board-Certified, Insured, W2 salaried employees who are skill-verified semi-annually. We serve our clients and patients 7 days a week with a 3-hour average response time, >98% success rate, and 0% Insertion-related infection rate. Vascular Wellness delivers all-inclusive IV Access Services with unrivaled consistency, reliability, and competitive pricing.
VASCULAR ACCESS SPECIALISTS
When we say we’re Vascular Access Specialists, it equates to precisely that… we place the right line as clinically indicated, at the right time, the first time, and in doing so, we deliver optimal care at reduced costs at the patient’s bedside. Evidence shows that the most successful method of delivering vascular access for optimal patient care is directly tied to a purpose-driven, specialized team of Vascular Access Specialists with a consistent process that directs their practice. Vascular Wellness is the leading vascular access company in the region, servicing Tertiary Hospitals, Community Hospitals, Long-Term Acute Care Hospitals, Skilled Nursing Facilities, Surgical and Outpatient Centers, Hospice, and At-Home care. We are a woman-owned, nurse-led mobile company that developed out of a passion for delivering safe and effective vascular access.
You need a Vascular Access Nurse Specialist fast. No problem. Our clients are connected to our 24/7 365 Vascular Support Team (VST), and we can dispatch a Vascular Access Nurse Specialist during business hours to your facility, often the same day, with an average response time of 3 hours. Our nurse clinicians are a devoted team of VA-BC, W2 employees who deliver reliable, consistent care and unparalleled client services. We pride ourselves on having earned the trust of many Licensed Independent Practitioners who consistently order Vascular Access Consultations, not just device placement. Our partners (Medical Doctors, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners) who call Vascular Wellness for consults know that we always conduct thorough patient assessments and can also place the clinically appropriate line while our clinician is onsite – even Advanced lines – which is unmatched by other PICC providers, if for no other reason than because they can only place PIVs, Midlines, and PICCs and are more transactional in nature solely focused on the needle stick. In other words, they don’t have and cannot provide similar expertise. We take great pride in delivering the best outcomes and employ the necessary team members to provide unparalleled patient and client service. We are Vascular Access Nurse Specialists who care deeply about each patient and client, and we are committed to helping our partners support modern healthcare treatment programs.
VASCULAR ACCESS SERVICES
Vascular Access Services and IV Access Services are sometimes used interchangeably in the industry to describe the general area of vascular access services. We do so similarly on this page. Our Vascular Access Services are nurse-provided IV Access Services delivered to the patient’s bedside. The available evidence suggests that the most effective way to provide top-quality vascular access services and ensure excellent patient outcomes is by establishing a dedicated, expert team that follows a well-defined and consistent approach in delivering their services. At Vascular Wellness, we devote 100% of our time and energy to expanding the field of nurse-led vascular access and take immense pride in our clinician’s abilities to provide expert services to many clients across a diverse landscape of customers. We have built our company around vascular access services and created an infrastructure to support our client partners. As a result, we have earned the reputation of providing the best, most reliable, and safe patient care.
Understandably, vascular access in some settings is inconsistent depending on several factors, including education and training, attrition, and lack of practical experience. At Vascular Wellness, our Vascular Access Specialists are Vascular Access Board Certified (VA-BC), insured, skill-verified, and salaried W2 employees. Vascular Wellness requires semi-annual skill verification, ensuring adherence to proprietary policies, procedures, competencies, and best practices. We focus on holistic and comprehensive care and do not follow the pay-per-procedure model plus performance bonuses used by others that 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. In fact, Vascular Wellness employs a Director of Research and Development who helps us stay current on best practices and improve upon Vascular Access Services.
We arrive at your patient’s bedside with the knowledge, equipment, and experience to assess your patients and provide a customized vascular access solution. Furthermore, our clinicians have the skill set to pivot when a prescribed line needs to be changed or advanced, which means your patient can receive treatment in place, avoiding transportation costs and allowing your medical team to focus on their field of practice. Those savings can be reinvested to improve access to skilled and scarce medical services. With the ability to place more vascular access devices (e.g., small bore internal juguler, femoral, and axillary lines, and large bore lines) than virtually any other vascular access company, Vascular Wellness can place the right line, as clinically indicated as opposed to placing an inferior line for the situation.
VASCULAR ACCESS EXCELLENCE
Despite the recommended guidelines for Vascular Access Excellence, vascular insertion attempts are sometimes performed by clinicians who are not Vascular Access Specialists. With our focus on vascular access, we can help you avoid unnecessary complications before they become serious for the patient. Vascular access is a highly specialized field and should be performed by Vascular Access Specialists and experienced clinicians, similar to other niches across the practice of medicine. At Vascular Wellness, our clinicians are rigorously trained and highly skilled in the field of vascular access and VAD placement, promoting Vascular Access Excellence. Furthermore, our Vascular Access Specialists practice holistic medical care, meaning talking to the patient, addressing questions and fears, and performing a comprehensive medical review. Before delivering 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. By taking these best practices steps, adverse vascular access occurrences are avoidable and risks mitigated. In addition, oftentimes, clinicians come across unforeseen contraindications and can assist the medical team in finding a better, safer solution to optimize patient outcomes and reduce future complications.
Furthermore, our clinicians arrive at your facility with all the necessary equipment and supplies to deliver unparalleled Vascular Access Excellence, enabling your staff to focus on other practice areas. Our full-service group of Vascular Access Specialists saves you valuable time, enables faster therapy, and avoids transportation costs, especially if there is a change in the initially prescribed line. We schedule our employee clinicians to help ensure the redundancy of skill sets across a geographic area so we can properly serve our clients and patients. In all instances, our Vascular Access Services are a seamless extension of our client’s clinical and administrative teams, providing clinical expertise and administrative support, including credentialing and quality and other reports as needed internally and externally, such as by The Joint Commission. In addition, our call center or Vascular Support Team (VST) operates (a) during business hours, working closely with a clinician trained to clinically evaluate incoming requests and connect clients with field clinicians, and (b) outside onsite service hours, with the ability to escalate to a Vascular Access Specialist to help address situations remotely and prioritize needs during the next available clinical hours. All major treatments begin with vascular access, and we place the right line at the right time, the first time…at your patient’s bedside.
