This presentation is provided to assist with the integration of the VIP score into clinical practice. The presentation describes topics such as the origins of infusion phlebitis and the potential litigation associated with phlebitic incidents. The VIP score empowers healthcare workers so that IV catheters can be removed at the first indication of phlebitis. The VIP score is recommended by the Department of Health (UK), INS (US) and RCN (UK). If you implement the VIP score you will be joining thousands of health care workers around the globe who use the VIP score to improve IV standards.
