Vos J, Franklin BD, Chumbley G, et al. Int J Nurs Stud. 2019;102.

Little is known about deviations from best practices in administration of intravenous infusions that occur as a result of nurses’ clinical judgement. This study explored the ways nurses contribute to system-level resilience in relation to infusion safety. Secondary analysis of qualitative data on errors and policy deviations in intravenous infusion administration in 16 English hospitals suggest that nurses are a key source of system-level resilience.
