Nestle HealthCare Nutrition and HealthCare Professionals Join Forces to Improve Patient Safety
Date:2/8/2010

ls, quality improvement groups and manufacturers to improve patient safety."

The "Be A.W.A.R.E." campaign promotes simple steps including:

  • Ceasing addition of medication directly into an enteral feeding formula
  • Administering each medication separately
  • Flushing the tube before and after each medication is administered
  • Diluting solid or liquid medication as appropriate
  • Administering medication using a clean oral or enteral syringe

Building on Nestle's ongoing patient safety initiatives, the "Be A.W.A.R.E." campaign accompanies the 2009 "Be A.L.E.R.T." campaign to promote safer enteral practices. Nestle also developed SpikeRight®, an enteral-specific port with a screw-top design that reduces compatibility with intravenous sets, thereby reducing the risk of tubing misconnections.  

"The Be A.W.A.R.E. campaign is an essential tool and supplement to A.S.P.E.N.'s Enteral Nutrition Practice Recommendations," said Peggi Guenter, PhD, RN, CNSN, director for clinical practice, advocacy, and research affairs at A.S.P.E.N. "We are very excited about this program because it distills critical information about delivering enteral medication correctly and safely into an easy-to-read guide for all healthcare practitioners."

A poster outlining the recommendations for safe medication delivery through feeding tubes will be distributed during A.S.P.E.N.'s Clinical Nutrition Week (CNW10) in Las Vegas February 8-12 and to hospitals across the nation. Posters will be available to download free of charge from www.nu
