OVIDIO ALIAGA URIA, FROM AUGUST TO OCTOBER 2017, A INDICATOR OF ATTENTION OF QUALITY. Rev. Méd. La Paz [online]. 2018, vol.24, n.2, pp. 24-32. ISSN 1726-8958.

INTRODUCTION. Intra-hospital infections are an indicator of quality care. The insertion and care of the peripheral venous catheter is the responsibility of the nursing staff. The incidence of phlebitis is a simple indicator to measure, cheap and quick assessment. We set out to determine the incidence of phlebitis and estimate an institutional situation. MATERIAL AND METHODS. The study is a Cross-sectional, observational, descriptive study about hospitalized patients, in children from 3 months to 14 years old. This is a study with a universe of 219 patients with a sample of 140 with 95% confidence level. The data collection was done by the researcher and validated by the IAAS committee (*). For this purpose, a Clinical Surveillance Test was implemented. RESULTS. A total of 16 cases of phlebitis were obtained, corresponding to 11.4% (n = 140) of incidence. The average age of the patients studied was one year. The service with the highest incidence was Neurosurgery with 25%. The male sex was 68.8%. The region of installation of the device was predominant in the flexure of the elbow and in the foot, both with 37.5%, infusion of Antibiotics was associated to the cases found in 56.3% (p = 0.411). Phlebitis Grade 2 was the one that reflected the highest incidence by 50%. DISCUSSION. The Intravenous Nurse Society suggests that the phlebitis rate should be below 5%. However, our study reflects 11.4%. CONCLUSIONS. Quality care is below the expected standard, important data was provided as a "zero score" for further research work in our institution.
