Objective This study aimed to evaluate the effect of optimization of the infusion workflow in isolation wards for patients with coronavirus disease 2019. Methods The infusion management group optimized the infusion workflow based on Hamer's Process Reengineering Theory and applied it to the treatment of patients with coronavirus disease 2019. The infusion efficiency, patients' satisfaction and economic indicators before and after optimization were compared. Results After the infusion workflow was optimized, average time for preparation drugs and intravenous admixture, and patients' waiting time decreased from 4.84 min, 4.03 min, and 34.33 min–3.50 min, 2.60 min, and 30.87 min, respectively, patients’ satisfaction increased from 66.7% to 93.3%, the cost of personal protective equipment (PPE) decreased from 46.67 sets and 186.6 CNY per day to 36.17 sets and 144.6 CNY, with statistical significance. Conclusion The optimization of the intravenous infusion workflow can effectively decrease the cost of PPE while improving the efficiency of infusion and patients’ satisfaction.
