Cost containment frequently forces healthcare workers to select peripheral intravenous (PIV) catheters based on cost and contract purchasing not catheter performance. This retrospective chart audit analyzed procedure based data on four PIV catheters from 610 PIV sites in 64 hospitalized patients. Placement attempts needed for successful placement, catheter failure, complications, costs, and antibiotic doses missed were evaluated. 610/757 placement attempts were successful: Angio 85/107, Insyte 296/371, Quickcath 224/271, and Jelco 5/8. Device failure contributed towards 64 antibiotic doses missed (Angio 5; Insyte 30, Quickcath 20, Jelco 0). Insyte and Quickcath reported 78 incidences of redness and Jelco the least. Performance standards require a new PIV every 72 hours. Only 7/85 Angio, 39/296 Insyte, 33/224 Quickcath, and 0/8 Jelco remained functional for 72 hours. Infiltration was the most frequently recorded complication (Angio 27/85; Insyte 92/296, Quickcath 69/224, Jelco 1/5). Angios leaked 15%, Insyte 10%, and Quickcath 10%. Jelco occluded 40% of the time, Angio 8%, Insyte 7%, and Quickcath 5%. Quickcaths had the best successful placement rates even though their complication rates were similar to Insytes and Angios. Although Jelco costs $7.11/day to insert/maintain the n was small; the others ranged from $3.08 to $3.96/day.
