Safety Risk from Failures

Our purpose is to put provide solutions to enhance the safety of your patients and increase clinical satisfaction.

Approximately 70 percent to 90 percent of hospitalized patients receive IV therapy at some point during their stay. Estimates overall catheter failure rates as high as 50 percent.

a) Main contributing factor to catheter failure is dislodgement. One reliable study lists dislodgement as the reason for restarts in the majority of catheter failures.

b) Given the prevalence of both IV therapy and catheter failure as a result of dislodgement, this issue has huge implications for both patient safety and healthcare costs.

Many different reasons can lead to accidental dislodgement including:

  • Confused patient
  • Patient physically removes IV
  • IV catheter tape or securement is loose
  • Patient moving around in bed with tangled tubing
  • Patient going to bathroom forgetting IV is attached
  • Patient hair growth or perspiration lifting dressing
  • Bed transfer of patient
Dislodgements consume substantial nursing time

Replacement time for short PIVs was estimated to be 6 min. to 20 min. by 68% of those surveyed.

41% of clinicians said dislodgement always presented a safety risk.

66% considered dislodgements a safety risk either always or often.

Short peripheral catheters are the most common type of catheter and the type most commonly dislodged.
