Description

Project goals:

Our project goals are to:

a) assess the burden of unnecessary PICCs and other non-tunneled central lines on med-surg units at TJUH and

b) understand the underlying reasons behind the problem. In the first phase of our project we conducted an audit of med-surg unit PICCs and other non-tunneled central lines with the goal of obtaining a rough estimate of the number of line days that are unnecessary.

SMART AIM

By December 31, 2017, the TJUH medical-surgical floors will reduce the number of unnecessary PICC lines by 30%.
