Reply To: Staff roles in clinic related to accessing central lines
We do not have MAs at our hospital. We do have LPNs that do a majority of our blood draws, including from central lines as well as placing IVs and performing butterfly sticks.

In your outpatient Hematology/Oncology or Blood and Marrow Transplant Clinic, does anyone allow non-nursing personnel (specifically Medical Assistants) to draw blood from central lines and/or access port-a-caths if that staff has had proper training and annual competency checks?
