January 2020 Nursing WSP: Distraction-Free Practice in the Home Setting

Join us Tuesday, January 21, 2020, for the next Nursing World Shared Practice Forum. 

Ms. Jamie Harris, a Nurse Practitioner in the Department of Cardiology at Boston Children’s Hospital, explains the principles of distraction-free practice which lead to the creation of the "Red Zone at Home" safety initiative. She will discuss how this method can be used by parents and caregivers to keep pediatric patients safe in the home setting. Ms. Harris talks about the types of common drug errors in this environment and offers tips on how to implement a similar initiative in your institution.
