Benchmarking for number of sticks for and IV

  1. I am searching for relevant information from other hospital or hospital like entities in regards to benchmarking. I am specifically looking at benchmarking of how many tries it takes to insert an intravenous catheter. What is the normal amount of tries, the number of "first" time efforts and so on. just wondering if anyone has done this kind of study, and what were your results?
