Traceability of Infant Feeds at CHI at Temple Street
In 2016 the hospital was audited by the Food Safety Professionals Association (FSPA). One of the findings of the audit was that the hospital was unable to track feeds to patients.
The hospital implemented a standards-based traceability database, barcode labelling and a scanning system that could capture the critical data about each product (expiry date or best before date, batch number, location within the hospital e.g. store or ward, the staff member that delivered or prepared the feed and ultimately the patient that received it).
