Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Patient safety initiatives are becoming increasingly important as clinicians examine ways of providing safe, quality care. Organizations with strong safety cultures encourage employees to be observant for any unusual events, not to assume unusual is unimportant (Roberts and Bea, 2001). Mother-Baby nurses were concerned regarding mothers intentionally sleeping with their infant. This creates an unsafe situation where the infant may drop to the floor or smother beneath its mother. A team of nurses met to devise interventions reinforcing the safe sleeping education. The emphasis of the intervention was education before and during the hospital stay while encouraging mothers to continue safe practices after discharge. Interventions included development of a poster reinforcing infant safety teaching. The poster was written in both English and Spanish with messages placed back to back. The poster message was also placed on a 4 by 6 inch laminated card given to each mother upon delivery of her infant. The poster is seen in the preadmission visit and is permanently placed in each patient room where the mother and family members view it throughout the hospital stay. The posters and cards are in place, education continues encouraging mothers to place the infant in the crib next to the bed or return them to the nursery when sleeping. Measurement metrics will be obtained from entries into the hospital computerized risk management program including near misses of babies falling or babies found under mothers while they are sleeping.
