Intravenous nurses make points

Boston Herald, January 28, 2014
Being an intravenous nurse involves a lot more than sticking patients with needles. This specialty branch of nursing, with teams in most major hospitals, requires specialized training to install complex central catheters and to operate new technology making them safer to implant and less apt to cause infections. There are 13 nurses on South Shore hospital's IV team, who work 24/7 offering support to 36 departments in the hospital. Clinical coordinator and team leader Irma Sivieri has 10 years experience as a nurse, eight of them as an IV nurse.
