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

    Article - En anglais


    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).


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