Children's Hospitals Today - Spring 2017 - 30

VITALS / NEWS AND UPDATES

Sneak peek
Here's your first look at the
photos from inside the nation's
children's hospitals.
In January, CHA launched its 2017
Children's Hospitals Photo Exhibit,
presented by Huggies. The exhibit
features 48 photos selected from
more than 100 images. They depict
the hope, compassion and resilience
shared by pediatric patients, their
families and the children's hospitals
providing specialized care. The
exhibit will debut on Capitol Hill in
Washington, D.C., in July.

CHILD HEALTH PSO
SAFETY ALERT WARNS OF
THERMAL INJURY RISK

The Child Health Patient Safety
Organization (PSO) released
a new Patient Safety Alert on
potential harm from thermal
products. These are devices
that can cause serious harm,
such as severe burns, pressure
ulcers and scarring when
they are misused in pediatric
patient care. The alert includes
a risk assessment tool
designed to help hospitals
identify vulnerabilities within

30

their own organizations. This is
the first tool developed by the
PSO to help assess risk and
avoid repeat harm. Intended
to start critical conversations
within any hospital caring for
children, the alert outlines
possible scenarios that could
cause patient harm as well as
recommendations to prevent
injuries. The thermal injury
alert, and nine previously
released alerts, help
hospitals proactively identify
safety risks. Learn more
