The Cost of Failed Attempts
In imaging centers it can be a necessity of the procedure to gain venous access to administer contrast dye. Access to veins can therefore mean the difference between being able to do the imaging at the time scheduled or having to reschedule the appointment. And sending patients away can have negative implications for facilities, and for patients.
- Intravenous therapy may not begin promptly;
- Delays and rescheduling of procedures may result from lack of venous access;
- Stress may increase for both patients and staff;
- Patients may ultimately need to be sent away, resulting in lost revenue.
