In brief: Usually

Today's healthcare is largely driven by evidence based principles and extraneous treatments are neither encouraged academically or by reimbursing agencies.
Consequently, the need for vascular access has been proven by past sometimes unpredictable bleeding episodes at a time when gaining vascular access is difficult and time is of the essence. Hospitals are not usually reimbursed extra for iv's.
