Greetings my dear colleagues!! I recently recorded a short podcast with the Infusion Nurses Society and is now available on line. Hope you’ll find a few minutes to listen in. Thanks!
Recommendations for Improving Safety Practices with Short Peripheral Catheters
Despite the frequent use of short peripheral catheters (SPCs) in all health care settings, education regarding the safe use of these devices has been reported as inconsistent. A task force was developed to identify, promote, and develop recommendations and tools that improve safety practices for patients and health care workers. The chair of the SPC Safety Task Force, Cora Vizcarra, will discuss the recommendations made in the INS position paper, Recommendations for Improving Safety Practices with Short Peripheral Catheters.
