Risk Management in Neonatal Transport
Retrieval medicine is associated with certain hazards. These can affect the patient or staff. Avoidable adverse events often arise as a consequence of suboptimal communication, drug error, inadequate preparation or equipment failure. Applying the principles of risk management and clinical safety is essential. To understand issues associated with neonatal transport one needs to look at the infrastructure of transfer teams, arrangements for governance, risk identification, incident reporting, feedback and learning from experience. One also needs to look at audit processes, training, communication and ways of team working. Adherence to current recommendations for equipment and vehicle design are also vital. Benchmarking between services and sharing best practice with a view to optimising safety and reducing risk is recommended.
