I am wondering what CPT you would bill for an IV hookup by a nurse in a clinical setting. We are setting this up for an outside facility as they struggle to get this in patients arm. We are not administering any meds or fluids just setting up the IV and other facility is removing it.

Any help is appreciated.

If you are doing another facility's work for them, as it sounds like you are from this description, then that facility should pay you for the service directly and you shouldn't have to code and bill this for your nurse. The insertion of the IV is incidental to the infusion or drug administration service that the facility is billing to the patient's plan and they are being paid for this already, so there shouldn't be an additional charge billed by an outside entity.
