Description

The safe handling of human milk within the hospital setting is often taken for granted without careful scrutiny of the process until problems arise. Potential risks with human milk handling include contamination, fortification errors, and administering the wrong milk to the wrong baby. This session will focus on a human milk management program with centralized handling and bar code scanning to reduce errors and improve efficiencies.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Outline primary risks associated with human milk handling within the hospital setting
  • Describe how health IT and bar code scanning technology can reduce risk of fortification errors and human milk misadministration
  • Describe how health IT and bar code scanning technology can improve efficiencies and reduce costs
  • Summarize regulatory standards related to human milk handling within the hospital setting
