This project identified and then implemented evidence-based practices for the insertion, maintenance, and discontinuation of peripheral IVs. Evaluation of the new practices indicate that the PIV bundle, including clinically indicated dwell times, does not increase the rate of PIV complications; ongoing work is required to assure adherence to all elements of the bundle.
