    There are times when I can only palpate a vein and not visualize it. In cases like this, if I miss the vein on the first entry, I have to palpate the site again to find where the vein is, but before I apply the transparent dressing, I will clean the area again (allowing the skin to dry). I will always avoid palpating over the site of needle entry.
