Clinical quality and outcomes can be drastically improved, along with avoidance of negative effects to your organization by preventing adverse events resulting from small bore device misconnections. These misconnections have caused unimaginably disastrous consequences to patients and their families (as well as clinicians), and supply chain leaders must insist on their prevention. This webinar will focus on the new ISO 80369 small bore connectors and why the FDA, CMS, and Joint Commission all strongly encourage adoption. Learn how to begin educating your clinicians and implementation of a successful conversion of all small-bore connectors to the new ISO 80369 compliant connectors, beginning with enteral feeding, ISO 80369-3.
How this Session Relates to the Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Movement: Clinical quality and outcomes can be drastically improved, along with prevention of negative affects to your organization by preventing adverse events resulting from small bore device misconnections.
