Patient Safety and Health Care Education and Consulting

Course Curriculum
Do you know what the 10 CDC safe injection requirements are and how to ensure you are in compliance? Do you know what the rules are for multi-dose vials? Does your staff know what cannot be taken into patient rooms, including the OR? Do you know what the beyond use date (BUD) is and what other information must be included on medication vials?
Injection safety, or safe injection practices, are measures taken to ensure that injections are performed in an optimally safe manner for patients. This is especially important in light of a number of cases where patients have died or suffered an adverse event in the past year. This program will review the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) survey memos related to safe injection practices and infection control, as well as the CDC standards. Our speaker will also cover the guidelines issued by Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) on IV push medication for adults. CMS requires hospitals to follow standards of care such as those issued by ISMP.
