Extravasation

Freedom of information request details

FOI request date:

Service: Claims Management

The following information was requested:

A colleague and I are looking at designing a simple cheap (£3-5) device to detect extravasation injuries at an early stage and to then either alert the staff or stop the infusion. we obviously need to make sure that such a device would be a worthwhile cost to the NHS. We therefore wondered if you kept details of such injuries, any compensation awarded and the costs of litigation on both sides?
