An article, “How technology helps nurses start IVs right the first time”, appeared on dailyherald.com, suburban Chicago’s largest daily newspaper. The article showcases Edward Hospital’s use of twelve AccuVein vein visualization devices and contains many great quotes from clinicians at the Hospital who are using the device. These statements include:
- “It helps you look at the veins, find a vein and look at the quality of a vein,” said Juliette Jaderberg, clinical leader of the medical/surgical unit. “A lot of times you can’t see or feel them, so it’s able to help us.”
- “That’s one thing that patients always remember is the IV start,” Patti Foley, nursing practice manager, said. “If the nurse tries and is not successful, the patient remembers.”
- “As a new nurse it’s very helpful,” Carly Hoban, a registered nurse on the medical/surgical floor, said. “It gives me a lot more confidence to use the vein-finder while I’m trying to start a new IV.”
