Special
messengers
Patients and families ask
Congress to protect health
care coverage for kids.
The timing was right for pediatric
patients and families to meet with
members of Congress for Children's
Hospital Association's Speak Now
for Kids Family Advocacy Day,
July 13 in Washington, D.C. The
young advocates and their families
discussed protecting health care
coverage for children who are
covered by Medicaid as health
care reform efforts were underway
in the Senate.

PREVENTING THE
SPREAD OF GERMS

The Child Health Patient
Safety Organization released
a Patient Safety Alert on
potential harm that can occur
from inconsistent disinfection
practices of clinicians'
personal medical devices.
If not properly disinfected
between patient encounters
at the bedside or during
exams and procedures,
items such as stethoscopes,
ophthalmoscopes and

otoscopes can spread
organisms that cause
outbreaks of infections in
medical facilities. View the
alert and the steps your
hospital can take to mitigate
risk at childrenshospitals
.org/alerts.
