Patient safety improves when hospitals use a combination of complimentary products such as leading edge IV technology, IV catheter protection, IV insertion site stabilization, and patient/caregiver education.
Some important bullet points about these products are,
Two Midwest hospitals saw a 20% reduction in moderate to severe infiltrates.
A third Midwest hospital saw a 17% decrease in infiltrates since converting to I.V. House products.
In a trial of the TLC Splint at a fourth Midwest hospital, 86% of nurses found it easier to view and assess the IV site, and they were able to reduce the amount of tape used.
In a West Coast hospital, the I.V. House UltraDome® and TLC® Splint were part of a bundle that reduced IV catheter loss from 25% to 5%, extending dwell times.
Nurses in a hospital in the Southeast gave high marks to I.V. House products. 95% of nurses found the products easy to apply, but more importantly, 86% said they made it easy to assess the IV insertion site.
Finally, the results of a trial at St. Louis Children’s Hospital showed ZERO IV infiltrates in patients wearing the TLC Wrist Splint compared to 12 IV infiltrates in the patients wearing traditional armboards.
