PHLEBITIS: a condition fairly avoidable if caused by healthcare interventions, however this condition can also be caused by varicose veins. I am truly passionate about this condition especially with reference to cannula care in hospitals! Within the UK there are systems in place and documents that help healthcare professionals to spots the early signs of phlebitis to reduce the risk to the patient. Phlebitis is treatable however if the condition becomes so severe it can lead to the development of a bloodstream infection or thrombophlebitis - where a thrombus enters the bloodstream which can cause stroke/heart attack!! Some top tips my mentors in the past have taught me:
1. NEVER cover a cannula site (if it is covered you cannot assess it)
2. If it's not dated or there is no documentation remove it (exception: if the patient is difficult to cannulate and you have assessed the site to be ok, if authorised by an appropriate clinician it can be left)
3. Any pain or swelling remove it immediately!!! 4. REMEMBER PERIPHERAL CANNULAS ARE TO BE USED FOR SHORT TERM ACCESS THEY SHOULD NOT BE LEFT IN BEYOND 72 HOURS!
5. Always check your documentation and always re-assess [ref: Mini-Dictionary for Nurses, 2014] #nurse#nursing#nurselife#nursesunite#nursestudent#healthcare#phlebitis#phlebitissucks#NHS#infection#infectionprevention#interventions#conditions#dictionary#support
It's the little things that just make your day. 💕
There are days when you wonder what the hell are you doing this job for, but then there are the days where it's all worth while.
There's nothing I love more than teaching student nurses on the job. You can see so much improvement in such a short space of time.
