  • Review the under recognized and underappreciated risks surrounding PIV catheters and why enhanced stability and securement are critical to prevent PIV complications and meet the standard of care.
  • Identify the elements necessary to meet the evidence-based standard of care and the necessity to incorporate current best evidence along with new technology.
  • Describe what the evidence-based studies have shown with respect to the use of tissue adhesives and PIV failure.
  • Analyze why the failure to incorporate new products/technology which have been proven to prevent adverse events in PIVs resulting from stabilization/securement issues may be a breach of the standard of care and result in poor patient outcomes and increased costs as well as potential liability.
