Safe Handling of Human Milk Within the Hospital Setting
This study examined critical steps taken for patient safety throughout the feeding process with emphasis on three primary areas: avoiding microbial contamination, preventing misadministration (wrong HM administered), and ensuring preparation accuracy.
“Research has shown that scanning systems (depending on specific product features) may reduce other errors and improve efficiencies by preventing fortifier/additive misadministration, monitoring expiration dates/times of prepared feedings as well as stored HM and fortifiers/additives, tracking lot numbers of DHM and fortifiers, automatically calculating fortified feeding recipes, reducing staff time needed for two-person verification, lot tracking, and recipe calculation.”
