This case involves a patient who suffered an extravasation injury while receiving IV chemotherapy. The nurse administering the IV therapy inserted the IV into a vein on the back of the patient’s hand. The patient immediately complained to the attending nurse that she was experiencing burning in her hand, however the nurse proceeded and did not stop the therapy. As a result, the patient suffered soft tissue damage and hypesthesia. It was alleged that the defendant nurse should have immediately stopped the infusion and that medications should have been used to try to arrest or minimize damage from the extravasation.
