My new favorite go-to spot for IVs has been the upper foot.  Something satisfying about a patient with no veins (from illness or IV drug user) and sliding the puppy in.  Obviously we don't use it all the time but when it works, oh, yeah, it's awesome.

I stink at IVs anyways but wow I have never tried to start one in the foot. I work on a CHF floor and those pt have terrible veins but I might consider the upper foot if I have too hehe!

Yes. Just ask for an order, though, if needed, especially on diabetics.
