Description

This instructional course has been designed to provide current conceptual and operational knowledge to the licensed clinician interested in the provision of intravenous medication by the IV push route. There are a number of drugs that may or must be administered by this method. For both the RN and LPN/LVN involved in administering drugs by this route, this course contains current practices for best patient outcomes. This course provides 1 contact hour of continuing education.

State Boards of Nursing have varying positions on the role of the LPN/LVN in the administration of infusion therapy. A link to each state board of nursing is listed here. Competency requirements are obtained and maintained through the clinician’s employer, facility or institution.

In early 2016, the Infusion Nurses Society (INS), recognized as the global authority in infusion therapy, released the updated Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice. The INS sets the accepted standards for infusion therapy practice for all healthcare settings. This course is based on the current best practices as defined by the Infusion Nursing Society and other governing agencies such as the CDC, and FDA.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Explain the difference between IV push medication administration and IV infusion medication administration

2. Recognize potential negative effects of administering IV push medications incorrectly

3. Demonstrate the proper procedures involved in the preparation and administration of IV push medications
