Background of the Study Intravenous catheterization is a procedure to deliver medication in to the vein, which is required by almost all patients admitted in the Inpatient department (IPD), but it can lead to some complications like thrombophlebitis. Thrombophlebitis is the inflammation and clot formation in the catheterized vein. Its incidence rates vary widely from 5.3 % to 77.5 % of all inserted catheters, 27 cases per 100 subjects. or 104 cases per 1000 catheter per days. In India the current incidence of catheter-associated (peripheral) ST is estimated at 0.5 cases of blood stream infections per 1000 days of a peripherally inserted intravenous device. For non-tunneled, non-medicated, central venous catheters, the incidence is estimated at 2.7 per 1000 intravenous device days. Approximately 4.2 % of burn patients experience peripheral ST. Material and Methods In this study Pre- Experimental design, one group pre-test and post-test design was used. Evaluative approach was used for the present study. This study was conducted at Maharana Bhupal Government Hospital at Udaipur city. Samples were selected by using simple random sampling method. The Sample size for the present study comprised of 60 ICU nurses. The data was collected using structured knowledge questionnaire. Data was analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results On over all comparison mean pre and post-test level of knowledge among respondents regarding prevention of thrombophlebitis. In the pre-test 30 % participants with inadequate knowledge, 63.3 % participants were having moderate knowledge and only 6.7 % were having adequate knowledge while in post-test 20 % participants with moderately adequate knowledge, 80 % participants were having adequate knowledge and no one were having inadequate knowledge regarding Prevention of Thrombophlebitis
