  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 L-CERP
  • Handout: No

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.

Learning Objectives:

Strategies to develop a human milk program for handling, storing, and preparing human milk in the hospital setting

Techniques for implementation of a comprehensive hospital-wide human milk program with human milk technicians

Identify trends for the future enhancement to human milk programs to improve handling, compliance, and safety
