Abstract

Background: Peripheral intravenous catheterization is a common invasive nursing procedure performed in healthcare institutions. It is a technique which involves insertion of a needle into the peripheral veins for various reasons. As one of the commonest nursing procedures being performed, it also brought significant risks to patients resulting to prolong hospital stay and delay in recovery period if not properly executed.

Objectives: The study primarily aims to determine the incidence rate of peripheral intravenous cannula related local complications in the hospital.

Design: The study is a descriptive type of research since it mainly deals with identifying the incident rate of phlebitis, infiltration, extravasation and hematoma and its underlying causes.

Settings: Study was conducted in one of the Ministry of Health hospitals in Jazan, Saudi Arabia.

Participants: All the patients admitted in the hospital during the data gathering period was included regardless of their demographic status. A total of 406 patients, with 458 peripheral cannula were assessed.

Methods: The study is quantitative type of research since it mainly sought to find out the number of phlebitis, infiltration, extravasation and hematoma cases in the above mentioned healthcare institution.

Result: The findings show that the rate of phlebitis, infiltration, extravasation and hematoma are 21, 7, 3.5, 12 percent respectively.

Conclusions: There were high incidence of intravenous cannula related complications in the hospital which needs to be reduced or completely eradicated in order to improve overall patient's health outcome.
