Abstract:
Paper Presentation: Creating a culture of safe patient care requires an institution-wide strategic vision of patient safety and a commitment to seek out, evaluate, and identify solutions to reduce error. Blood product administration error is a top patient safety issue identified by JCAHO, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the AHRQ. In 2005, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics implemented a system of wireless barcode scanning at the point of care for all blood product transfusions. This presentation covers the entire process including: 1) the initial methodology used to assess blood transfusion errors, 2) the establishment of a multidisciplinary task force to look at solutions, 3) the choice of wireless bar code scanning, 4) the development of the necessary technology across the institution, 5) the education processes used to train the bedside providers in the technology and 6) the astounding results after one year of implementation. Wireless barcode scanning technology is a realistic solution to improve patient safety. The process of developing and implementing this technology is possible if the steps defined in this presentation are utilized.
