dc.description.abstractObjectives Redundant (unused) peripheral intravenous cannulas (PIVCs) can lead to patient discomfort and potential harm. The aim of this study was to improve the post insertion management of PIVCs with a focus on redundancy. Methods A regular auditing and feedback program was introduced as an intervention to improve the rates of redundant PIVCs. We performed consecutive daily audits without any feedback over a 2 week period immediately prior to the intervention and 6 months post-commencement. Pooled rates of redundant devices during those periods were compared to assess the intervention impact. A multivariate logistic regression model was created to identify variables associated with redundant devices over the 15-month intervention period. Results The pooled rate of redundant devices in the pre-intervention period was significantly higher than in the 6-month period following commencement of the intervention (41.4% versus 31.7%; p = 0.02). From the intervention period, 994 PIVCs were used to create a logistic regression model. The use of a device care plan (OR 0.60 95% CI 0.37–0.88, p = 0.02), insertion in a medical ward (OR 0.45 95% CI 0.32–0.65, p < 0.001), days the device was in-situ (OR 1.41 95% CI 1.20–1.68, p < 0.001) and days from the start of the intervention (OR 0.99 95% CI 0.99–1.00, p < 0.001) were associated with redundant devices. Conclusion Removal of redundant PIVCs is an important aspect of post insertion management of PIVCs. Rates of redundant devices can be reduced through a real-time auditing and feedback program.en_US
