Wireless Connectivity Between Smart Pumps and Millennium
January 21, 2013, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CST
Bobbie Carroll, and Sarah Giga, Children’s Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota. Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota implemented a comprehensive bar code medication administration (BCMA) for all medications. Using BCMA for “pills, shots, drops, and IV medications” to validate 5-rights is not new. The innovation Bobbie and Sarah discuss is going to the next level for infusions by wirelessly transmitting the physician’s orders to pre-program the smart pump and automatically transfer infusion data back to the electronic medical record (EMR).
