CLINICAL EDUCATION SERIES
Misconnections are 100% preventable. Tragically, misconnections still occur, as seen in the case studies of adverse events reviewed in the FDA article: https://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/medical-device-connectors/examples-medical-device-misconnections. These examples provide a stark reminder of how a seemingly simple mistake can cause harm or death to a patient and can negatively impact the lives of so many others.
Our goal, as a manufacturer, is to prevent the possibility of a medical device misconnection by following the ISO 80369 Standard and supporting GEDSA’s conversion plans.
We are committed to standardizing our medical device connections and providing education about the importance for these types of connections. To help us reach our goal, please share this article and educate your colleagues on the importance of preventing misconnections. Visit GEDSA’s website: https://stayconnected.org/ to stay up to date on information related to preventing misconnections and improving patient safety.
