Save one life and you’re a hero, save a hundred, and you’re a nurse— Anonymous

Nurses have a critical role in patient care and the healing process. Complications and challenges in IV care delivery place a significant burden on the workload of nurses, and eventually on patient outcomes. Nurse practitioners can prevent adverse events and undesirable patient outcomes by using their expertise to lead practice, facilitate change and monitor effectiveness of interventions.1

We in BD IV News fully recognise the contributions made by nurses to the world of health. Each month, The Nurses’ Station will feature a fresh piece of content to enable nurses to stay abreast of the latest techniques, tools and interventions in IV care delivery and oncology.
