All CHA member hospitals are invited to connect with peers and discuss implementation of ENFit connectors through a new discussion group offered in conjunction with the new Supply Chain Services (SCS) Value Analysis program.
New industry-mandated tube connectors, called ENFit, are designed to prevent tube misconnections (between feeding and other types of tubes) that can harm patients. However, children’s hospitals and feeding tube vendors have discovered children may be at increased risk for liquid medication dosing errors with ENFit products as described in a patient safety alert from the Child Health Patient Safety Organization.
