The proportion of patients with a PIVC in situ that can identify the reason for the device.
A patient requiring intravenous access should receive information and education about their need for the device and the procedure. This is so patients can consider the risks and benefits, and make an informed decision about whether it is right for them. Engaging patients in the management of their device can help reduce the risk of device‑related complications.
