PIV Failure - Why a New Standard of care is needed


1. Review the underrecognized and underappreciated risks surrounding PIV catheters and why enhanced stability and securement are critical to prevent PIV complications and meet the standard of care.

2. Identify the elements necessary to meet the evidence-based standard of care and the necessity to incorporate current best evidence along with new technology.

3. Describe what the evidence-based studies have shown with respect to the use of tissue adhesives and PIV failure.

4. 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.
