IV Insertion Site Protection for Active Adults, the Critically Ill, and Those with Dementia
Although anyone can benefit from IV insertion site and IV therapy joint stabilization, special considerations must be made when placing an IV in fragile skin. Geriatric adults are more susceptible to bruising and there is a higher risk for potential skin tears, so increasing dwell time is critical for continuous IV therapy. The TLC® Splint and I.V. House UltraDressing® help secure the IV catheter to reduce accidental dislodgment which can lead to serious complications.
