The article entitled “Centralized Breastmilk Handling and Bar Code Scanning Improve Safety and Reduce Breastmilk Administration Errors” published in Breastfeeding Medicine in 2014 supports the use of centralized breastmilk handling and bar code scanning systems for proper identification of breastmilk.
The study found that during the first 6 months of breastmilk bar code scanning, 55 attempts to feed the wrong breastmilk to the wrong patient and 127 attempts to feed expired breastmilk were prevented, highlighting the effectiveness of the system in reducing errors and improving patient safety.

It is important to note that the study was conducted independently at a facility utilizing the Timeless Women & Infants System ™ with no financial incentive provided by Timeless Medical Systems.
