Description

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) reports that approximately 1.5 million hospital patients experienced, and are harmed by, medication-related adverse events each year. Half of these events are related to the use of infusion pumps. Infusion-related medication errors can result in serious injury or death. But, the development of "smart pump" technology, in tandem with standardized drug concentrations, dosing units, and drug nomenclature, is helping to reduce the occurrence of infusion-related medication errors. This presentation will provide information on the importance of smart pump technology in reducing medication administration errors, as well as the implementation and evaluation of the technology.

*Note: Participants who attended the live version of this program at the 2011 INS Fall National Academy of Infusion Therapy and One-Day Program in Los Angeles, CA (November 2011) are not eligible to receive contact hours or CRNI® recertification units through this online program.

Objectives

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Explain the role of smart pump technology in preventing medication errors.
