Is a licensed technition required to administer a heparine flush to a picc line?

Posted by kemosabi


        I was receiving an IV drip of antibiotics thru a picc line .I was told by this homecare  company that a layman like myself was able to administer this IV, and then flush the picc line.  The flush being saline 10cm and then a flush of heparine 2cm. my question  pertains to this matter as the picc line became infected on the second day of use.
