Can we eradicate maladministration of expressed breast milk using a risk analysis approach?
Charlotte A. Card, Katy Barnes, Philip Amess
Reported errors of expressed breast milk (EBM) administration (specifically, feeding a mother’s EBM to the wrong infant) were analysed for a tertiary neonatal intensive and special care unit. Interventions aimed at reducing errors during a seven-year period were reviewed. As a result, we propose a potential solution to further improve the process of EBM administration. We hope that by highlighting our project to the wider neonatal community, we might promote discussion around the handling of EBM and potential maladministration.
