  1. Reduction of unnecessary intravenous catheter use : internal medicine house staff participate in a successful qulaity improvement project.

    Article - En anglais

    Background 

    We had previously observed that a large proportion of peripheral intravenous (IV) catheters placed in patients on a regular medical ward at our hospital were unnecessary.

    We conducted the current study to assess the effect of a quality improvement project led by medicine house staff on the prevalence of unnecessary peripheral IV catheters (those without any therapeutic use, referred to as idle).

    Methods 

    All patients on four regular-care medical wards of a large university-affiliated veterans hospital were included in the study.
