The vascular access team at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is nationally renowned for its multidisciplinary approach that combines the skills of nurses, doctors and technicians.
Our nursing team consists of three subgroups:
All vascular access nurses are cross-trained in various roles so they can assist with the work of all teams. Our goal is to provide optimal, evidence-based vascular access care for our patients.
Interventional radiologists provide support to the vascular access nurses in procedures such as placement of peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs) using a guide wire and verification of PICC tip locations.
The interventional radiologists also provide education to vascular access nurses and Cincinnati Children’s physicians.
An interdisciplinary group at Cincinnati Children’s has developed and implemented a new intravenous extravasation assessment and documentation tool to help improve the health of our children. We now want to share this information with other pediatric doctors and nurses so that they may also reduce extravasation risks for their patients.
