NICU Nutrition Management
In the challenging and dynamic environment of the NICU, neonatal professionals must achieve a constant balance between patient safety and efficient treatment through nutrition management. The SafeBaby® software solution was developed with the needs of nurses and preemies in mind: no matter how many patients require medical care, our system insures that yours will receive safe, cost-effective and personalized feeds free from incorrect nutrition.
By scanning the unique 2-D barcode on each tube of expressed breast milk or formula, SafeBaby® software validates that the correct milk is being fed to the correct child, and verifies the contents are not expired or otherwise incompatible for the baby’s current treatment plan. If the patient requires additional milk fortification, the system will identify the mixture amount and aid the nurse in bottle preparation. After tracking the volume, fortification, and time of the administered feed, the SafeBaby® System automatically updates the patient’s EMR, ensuring no vital information is lost and each feed has been accounted for. Pairing our software with tools like NeoMed’s® closed-system bottles and enteral feeding tubes guarantees that the expressed breast milk, donor milk or formula is never exposed to air, reaching the baby without risking tubing misconnections or bacterial contamination and decreasing hospital liability. All of our products are designed to work together to provide efficient milk collection, storage, fortification and delivery from inventory banks and mothers to the NICU, yet can operate independently when their isolated functions are desired. This comprehensive feed management system combines the innovation and security of electronic software, the dependability of NICU-tested hardware, and the quality of Abbott’s specialized formulas to bring you one patented solution unlike any other available on the market. Since 2009, SafeBaby® software has been used in NICUs and donor milk banks around the country to ensure the continued growth and safety of at-risk children.
