Peripheral IV catheter problem reduction

Extract:

“To evaluate the application effect of the 360° safe indwelling infusion program of peripheral venous indwelling needle in the infusion room of pediatric outpatient clinic. A total of 1,000 children who received indwelling needle infusion were randomly divided into experimental group (n = 500; 360° safe indwelling needle) and control group (n = 500; a routine indwelling needle). The incidence of indwelling needle-related complications and adverse events in the experimental group was significantly lower than that in the control group, and the number of indwelling days, indwelling needle usage rate, and parent satisfaction were significantly higher than those in the control group. The 360° safe indwelling infusion program can significantly reduce the incidence of complications and adverse events, and improve the quality of the indwelling needle infusion. The 360° safe indwelling infusion can effectively improve the comprehensive quality and safety of nursing care in the outpatient infusion room.”
