Every I.V. site presents the potential for infection, dislodgement, skin damage and other complications. These complications can potentially cause patient discomfort and pain, extended hospital stays, additional therapy, and surgical intervention—even increased patient mortality.
3M Science offers a broad portfolio of innovative tools that can help you protect every I.V. catheter—from insertion to removal. From hand hygiene, skin preps and barrier films to securement devices, transparent dressings, and disinfecting caps, our evidence-based products can help you deliver compassionate care, protect patient and clinician safety, help prevent the risks of costly complications, and improve patient satisfaction.
The Infusion Nurses Society recently revised its Infusion Nursing Standards of Practice. Lisa Gorski, chair of both the 2011 and 2016 INS Standards of Practice Committees, presents a two-part program to help update clinicians on the changes.
We can help you deliver compassionate care with evidence-based products that help protect clinicians and patients, prevent complications and improve patient outcomes.
