Assure Technologies, LLC of Chapel Hill, NC will receive support for the Precynge device to provide consistently accurate small volume medication measurements critical to pediatric care. Neonatal and early pediatric patients are particularly vulnerable to dosing errors; exposure to potential adverse drug events occurs three times more frequently in pediatric than in adult inpatients. While the majority of IV doses are made in the pharmacy, nurses frequently prepare IV push medications at the bedside for small volumes in neonatal and pediatric patients, especially for high alert medications like narcotics and insulin. The Precynge will provide nurses the same safety systems available in the pharmacy.
