Good evening,

I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

The nursing home can only have the PIC line removed by order of your wife's physician. The nursing home does not get to decide whether the PIC line should come out or not.

I see no reason the line would have to come out just because she will have her teeth worked on. Speak with her physician about what the nursing home is wanting to do---and no, they don't get to determine the medical care of your wife when it comes to the PIC line. Her doctor does.
