    That would be teaching family members about what to do if the I.V. Site 'tissues' as in leaks into the surrounding area,or what are the signs of an adverse reaction and of course,what to do,and also,if the cannula (needle) comes out,how to re-site it...........I am sure a lot of families would jump at the chance of a crash course in intravenous treatments(not). If someone requires I.V. Treatment,they need careful monitoring of their overall condition especially for signs of deterioration,and that requires hospital care not D.I.Y. care.
    This is neither a money saver nor a life saver I'm afraid.
