Infusion Nurses Society Webinar Sponsored by ivWatch
February 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Register today for the live webinar, “Short Peripheral Catheter Infiltration: Minimizing Risks to Improve Outcomes.” Hospitalized patients receiving medications or fluids via short peripheral catheters (SPCs) are at risk for infiltration. Infiltration can increase patient length of stay, result in repeated vascular access procedures, increase costs by use of supplies and nursing time, lead to short-term and long-term patient harm, and decrease patient satisfaction. Early detection of infiltration can minimize risks by prompt intervention. Quality improvement projects have been directed toward staff education on SPC insertion, maintenance, assessment, and monitoring. This webinar will discuss current research and practice initiatives, as well as the benefits of emerging technology aimed at reducing infiltration.
