APPLAUSE: Here’s To Rochester Regional Health’s IV Nurses

In honor of IV Nurse Day, we want to thank all IV nurses throughout RRH for their dedication to delivering infusion care to our patients. IV Nurse Day was Thursday, January 25, and this year the theme was “It’s About Us. It’s About Infusion.”

In honor of IV Nurse Day, Unity Hospital celebrated by recognizing their Vascular Access Team, also known as PICC.  Unity is one of seven hospitals in the country that runs a PICC insertion training class in collaboration with BARD Access. Groups from all over the country attend this class to learn skills and find out how to start PICC teams of their own.
