Poster Presentation

Abstract/Description

My poster presentation is a research analysis of whether to rotate the peripheral IV site every 72-96 hours or when clinically indicated. The research supported rotating the site only when clinically indicated because the risk for complications generally occur within the first 24 hours of having an IV. More research needs to be conducted to prove this produces the best patient outcomes but it currently supports clinically indicated.
