there has been an increasing number of blood culture contamination from our
PED recently.

All the peds EDs I work, we obtain the blood culture when the IV cath is
inserted.

How many of you use a second venipuncture for obtaining blood culture,
particularly in infants 2 months and less

Thanks

Mathew
