    We currently us an IV start kit for peripheal IV placements.  Do any other institutions use a PIV kit or do you gather supplies for each PIV placement?  If you have a kit, please share the contents of your kit if you are willing.  We are looking to remove some of our unneccesary items (ie., skin prep).

    Thank you in advance,
