NICU naming system reduces errors in EMR data

NANN SmartBrief | Oct 16, 2014

Creating an identification system for yet-to-be-named neonates helped one NICU reduce errors when clinical orders were entered into an EMR system, researchers from Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, N.Y., told the American Academy of Pediatrics annual meeting. Dr. Jason Adelman said a survey of more than 300 NICUs found more than 80% used BabyBoy, BabyGirl or BB/BG for unnamed infants, which increases the risk of mix-ups in patient charts.
