Can't you get extra money per hour if starting difficult IV's is added to your job role? At our facility,whatever supervisor is covering the house gets to start/restart difficult cases.Originally posted by: Pliablemoose
I've been at current job for >2 years after years in ICU & a decade + in ER.
Am in the PACU (recovery room) and one of the things we rarely ( like once or twice a year) is start IV's.
Last week we started rotating a bit & helping in the pre op part of the dept, and one of the big skills is starting IV's, and I intentionally kept my mouth shut about my mad IV skilz, so folks wouldn't pester me to help.
4 hours into my first rotation my co workers figured out what I've done for the last couple of years.
I've started over a dozen "problem" IV's for them this week already...
