There are many different forms of infusions that are administered to infants and children, and many are life-saving. However, they are also not without the potential for serious complications and morbidity. Infusion nurses are at the forefront of promoting safe, high-quality practices to prevent harm from this vital therapy. In this webinar, we will explore the strategies infusion nurses can employ to reduce harm to pediatric patients at their organization.
