A study of intravenous infusion pump usage patterns showed that nurses frequently were using this device for convenience rather than for clinical need. Patient charges and actual cost savings were calculated based on substitution of a manual flow regulation device for an infusion pump. A potential savings of $674,508 in capital costs and $271,408 in annual patient costs were realized when nurses' practice was changed.
