Biography:

I am a Board Certified Neonatal Nurse Practitioner and a Certified Lactation Counselor since 2010. I work in a 52 bed level 3 Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. As a bedside RN for 8 years I assisted in the advancement of our lactation program by hosting Lactation Counselor courses, developed the human mil technician role, and assisted in developing the hospital standards for donor milk use in preterm infants. I am currently the Clinical Leader in which my responsibilities include the development of our hospital-wide human milk for our 900 bed hospital, educate and train human milk technicians, and ensure all human milk in our institution is handled and stored according to the highest National standards.

The Development and Implementation of a Hospital-Wide Human Milk Storage and Handling Program
Even though we handle and store approximately 75,000 human milk containers per year we found significant inconsistencies in practice across our perinatal, pediatric, and adult units. In this presentation we will share practical, day to day strategies that we used to eliminate these inconsistencies and increase quality and safety related to handling and storing of human milk. We will discuss the development and implementation of our hospital-wide human milk room as well as the human milk technicians and the problems we overcame to make the program successful.
