The AAMI Foundation is presenting a series of Webinars in conjunction with the National Association of Clinical Nurse Specialists on how hospitals can improve the safety of infusion pumps.
Mary Kane, RN, MS, vice president and regional chief nursing informatics officer at Catholic Health Initiatives, will present the first online seminar, titled “Raising the Bar on Infusion Safety: A Patient Safety Program at Catholic Health Initiatives,” on Friday, June 24 from 12 p.m.-1 p.m. EST. During the Webinar, Kane will discuss the implementation of an initiative to boost drug library compliance with smart infusion devices.
“Infusion pumps are one of the most widely used technologies in healthcare today, but infusion errors and pump failures can pose serious risks to patients,” says Marilyn Neder Flack, senior vice president of patient safety initiatives and executive director of the AAMI Foundation. “This free seminar promises to be a very interesting window into the challenges and benefits of implementing infusion therapy safety initiatives. These lessons learned can help others identify and implement similar initiatives in their own hospitals.”
