We found all 21 studies results proved influence factors that can cause plebitis and can be categorizes to 4 major factor which are: procedure and techniques,place and position,people,and types of fluids and medicines factors. Influence factors that mostly cause plebitis occurring in the 7 countries are from procedures and techniques, and people factors. Many are caused by violation the procedures and low soft skill in health

Conclusions: Plebitis incidence has become major issue in nosocomial infection at the hospital many countries.
