This presentation will provide attendees with an optimal vascular access specialty team (VAST) approach by applying Lean thinking in the application of a catheter success bundle with the goal of 1 patient, 1 IV catheter insertion with 1 attempt. The 5-part bundle, established using a LEAN/Six Sigma methodology, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control approach, demonstrated that the skilled IV clinician achieves better outcomes than the generalist model. Results on improved outcomes and cost savings will be discussed.
