A Day for IV Nurses!
Today is National IV Nurses Day! This healthcare holiday was created back on January 25th, 1980 when the U.S. House of Representatives wanted to honor nurse infusion specialists as well as the Infusion Nurses Society (which now has over 7,000 members!). This year’s theme is “A Vital Role in Quality Healthcare”, which recognizes how crucial credentialed nurses are to a healthcare team. Nurses specialized in infusions are essential for providing patients with the correct dosages of their medications as well as taking preventative measures against bloodstream infections that can occur at the infusion site.
Uniform Advantage would like to say Happy IV Nurses Day to all of our customers who are infusion nurses! Since you do your part year-round to “get it right the first time” for your patients, go ahead and treat yourself to a new set of stylish spring scrubs!
I LOVE READING ALL THIS HISTORY THAT I NEVER KNEW IN NURSING!
As a long time patient, myself, I have to say, that the IV stick is the worst part of being hospitalized. No matter how many times I’m in (since age 5yrs, and at least 2x a year since), the pain and anxiety of IV sticks never ‘gets easier.’ I want all IV nurses&teams to know that what they do, to me, is the most important job in an admission. Thank you for specializing in this area-I know it means alot to many!
