Umbilical catheters: safety issues and update to the current BAPM framework for care

Karen Hooper

Every year over two million incidents of actual harm or near misses are reported by trusts via their local reporting systems. This information is fed into the National Reporting and Learning System (NRLS). Clinicians in the Patient Safety team at NHS Improvement routinely review incidents to identify new or under-recognised issues that may need national action to highlight safety concerns to the relevant staff groups, suggest system-level changes, or address manufacturer design processes. This patient safety article aims to outline the actions taken by the Patient Safety team at NHS Improvement in response to reported incidents from aspects of umbilical catheterisation.
