AAMI Advises on How Healthcare Facilities Can Prepare for Small-Bore Changes

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are gearing up for newly designed small-bore connectors to help eliminate tubing misconnections, a significant patient safety hazard. The issue promises to be a hot topic for both healthcare technology in general and the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) in the coming months. AAMI has taken a leading role in developing a series of design standards for specific connectors.

AAMI offers a number of free resources on its small-bore hot topics page, including an FAQ document that answers such questions as what healthcare providers can do to ensure their facilities are prepared for the change. In addition, the Premier Safety Institute is hosting a webinar, “New standards for medical tubing connectors: Are you ready?” on Aug. 20, 2014.
