Due to low compliance by bedside nursing with a central line-associated bloodstream infection (CLABSI) prevention bundle and increased CLABSI rates, a mandatory re-education initiative at a 1200-bed university-affiliated hospital was undertaken. Despite this, 2 units, housing high-risk immunocompromised patients, continued to experience increased CLABSI rates. A quality improvement before-after project design in these units replaced bedside nursing staff with 2 nurses from the vascular access team (VAT) to perform central vascular access device (CVAD) dressing changes routinely every 7 days or earlier if needed...

REVIEW
Pamela Clark
There is a direct correlation between being overweight and iron deficiency. Physiological changes occur in obese adipose cells that contribute to the development of iron deficiency (ID) and iron deficiency anemia (IDA). These changes disrupt the normal iron metabolic checks and balances. Furthermore, bariatric surgery can lead to long-term ID and IDA. Oral iron supplementation may not be effective for many of these patients. Intravenous iron infusions can significantly increase the quality of life for individuals experiencing this condition but are also associated with potentially serious complications...

Ultrasound-guided insertion of peripheral intravenous catheters (PIVCs) is recommended for patients with difficult intravenous access, but access to ultrasound equipment is often limited to specialty departments. Compact, affordable handheld ultrasound devices are available, but the extent of their clinical adoption and impact on patient outcomes is unknown. This scoping review aimed to explore evidence regarding handheld and pocket ultrasound devices for PIVC insertion. Databases were searched for studies published in English between January 2000 and January 2023 evaluating handheld or pocket ultrasound devices weighing ≤3 kg for PIVC insertion...

Patients with difficult intravascular access (DIVA) are common, yet the condition is often ignored or poorly managed, leading to patient dissatisfaction and misuse of health care resources. This study sought to assess all published risk factors associated with DIVA in order to promote prospective identification and improved management of patients with DIVA. A systematic literature review on risk factors associated with DIVA was conducted. Risk factors published in ≥4 eligible studies underwent a multivariate meta-analysis of multiple factors (MVMA-MF) using the Bayesian framework...

There is a growing body of evidence about physiological changes with age that impact fluid and electrolyte balance. It is important that infusion nurses have knowledge in managing care for geriatric patients so they can identify these changes when they are exhibited. Knowing how to minimize the effect of these changes on the health of older adults is critical. The infusion nurse with knowledge of geriatric-focused care can avoid complications and critical illness in older adults. In addition, it is important to provide specific patient education that is grounded in geriatric best practices...

Volumetric infusion pumps are used together with infusion sets to deliver medication to patients. Flow rate errors leading to overinfusion or underinfusion are known problems with these devices. Recently, numerous underinfusion flow rate errors were reported at a Swedish hospital. This experimental study reports on the investigation of these errors and specifically investigates the effect of operating the pump with a defective infusion set that has a visible elongation of the silicone segment of the set. Pump flow rate accuracy testing was performed using a gravimetric method...

Biologic drugs are large, complex molecules produced through biotechnology. A biosimilar is a biologic product that is highly similar to an already approved biologic (reference product), with no clinically meaningful differences in purity, safety, or efficacy; as such, a biosimilar does not need to undergo the same level of study in a clinical trial program as the original reference product. Due to the potential impact of biosimilars on patient access and health care systems, the US Food and Drug Administration introduced an abbreviated pathway for approving biosimilars (351[k]) in 2009...
