Presentation from the 2018 REMEDI Infusion Pump Collaborative Annual Conference held April 18 - 20, 2018 at the Big Ten Conference Center in Rosemont, IL.

During this session, Michelle will discuss the important safety benefits provided by smart pumps as well as current risks observed with the underutilization of this technology. A description of infusion workflows will be provided to highlight present complexities and vulnerabilities in IV medication administration. In addition, examples of errors that can occur despite the use of smart infusion pumps will be presented, including IV line and drug mix-ups, incorrect library selections, and programming or dosing errors caused by a failure to engage the dose error reduction software (DERS).
