Detailed Directions for Use Videos Show Proper Application Techniques
We are pleased to announce that we have all new videos demonstrating Directions for Use for all I.V. House products now available for viewing in the Education section of our website.
The updated videos include new tips, tools, and techniques that have been developed thanks to nurse feedback since our last production, and we’ve added videos demonstrating the application of our new TLC Elbow Splints for the first time ever.
These helpful videos are tools you and your nursing team can review as a refresher on proper application. They’re also useful during the onboarding and training process when a new nurse is added to your team.
The videos also demonstrate the Touch, Look, and Compare site assessment method that was developed by a large pediatric hospital as a memorable method for nurses to evaluate a patient’s IV insertion site.
- Touch: IV insertion site should feel soft, warm, dry, and pain-free.
- Look: IV insertion site should be uncovered, dry, and without redness.
- Compare: IV insertion site and surrounding area should be the same size as the opposite extremity and without swelling.
Learning the proper application of these ergonomically designed products will help increase nurse efficiency and improve patient safety at your hospital.
Video Fun Facts:
- Some of the older pediatric models in these videos have appeared in our brochures and videos since they were babies.
- The nurse applying the products is a former pediatric ER nurse and current Trauma Coordinator at the same St. Louis area hospital that our CEO, Lisa Vallino worked at before founding I.V. House, Inc.
