PIV Failure- Why a new standard of care is needed

1. 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.
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.
