Abstract

Phlebitis is one of the local complications related to intravenous therapy, which must be managed by the nursing team. This study analyzed the knowledge of the nursing team about phlebitis and its main risk factors, prevention, and control measures. This is a cross-sectional study with a quantitative design carried out with 124 nursing professionals from a Brazilian university hospital. The data collection was carried out between the period of August 2018 to July 2019 for that, the researchers applied a multiple-choice questionnaire. The results showed the equivalence of the three nursing categories in terms of knowledge about phlebitis, however, there was a discrepancy concerning the phlebitis visualization scale, use of warm compresses, dressings, chemical properties of the solutions and factors intrinsic to the patient. The need to implement permanent education among professionals became evident.
