We have had an increase in PIV BSI's and are looking at ways to correct that. One area is "idle IV's". That is an IV that has had nothing med-wise given, just the Q 8 hour flushes. We are trying to discern what constitutes idle and if this is an area to focus on. We think that 24 hours of non use possibly would need the IV removed, per a nurse driven protocol. Does anyone do anything like this and if so what are the criteria?
