Innovative solutions in critical care units: extravasation guidelines.

Author information

Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center Phoenix Hospital, Phoenix, Arizona 85006, USA.


The increasing complexity and acuity of the patient population at a southwest United States medical center was a catalyst in updating, revising, and distributing a current extravasation guideline document to caregivers. The guidelines provide information on initial treatment for nurses and the process for documentation and tracking of extravasations. The authors describe how a synthesis of the Nursing and Pharmacy partnership at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center resulted in the creation of current extravasation guidelines for the facility.
