AHRMM Webinar: Reducing the Risk of Medical Device Misconnections

Date: Feb 27, 2020 - Feb 27, 2020

This webinar will be on February 27 at 12:00 p.m. Central / 1:00 p.m. Eastern. 
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.
Learning Objectives:  
  • Understand the new ISO 80695 small bore connector standards and their creation
  • Explain the new enteral feeding specific standard ISO 80695-3 and its effect on your facility
  • Discuss how to begin making preparations for the conversion to the new standards and future standards with your team
