Injuries as a Result of IV Misuse

Hospital Mistakes

Administering an IV is one of the most frequently performed procedures in a hospital. It is one of the first and most basic things that hospital staff are taught. Unfortunately, there are still errors in this common practice.

Every body is different; it can be hard to find an entry point for the needle, and it may even require more than one uncomfortable poke. However, when an IV is left in an arm for too long, there can be nerve injuries and infections that can lead to a patient losing the use of that arm. This is medical negligence as a result of IV errors.

These serious and devastating effects are not hard to avoid. In fact, in most cases, they are the result of under-staffing and permitting unqualified hospital personnel to administer the IV. Hospitals choose to cut corners in these areas in an effort to build profit — a greedy notion that manifests itself in medical malpractice.

Hospitals are profit-making machines. They are backed by some of the nation’s wealthiest businesses — pharmaceutical and insurance companies. To short-staff and allow under-qualified staff to perform tasks that are beyond their skill for the sake of saving money is pure negligence.
