Fairfield have developed a barcode printing and labelling solution specifically to match mum, milk and baby for neonatal feeding, to ensure only the correct milk is fed to baby.
Utilising the existing patient wristbands, neonatal nurses scan the patient ID barcode to trigger a portable printer, via Bluetooth, to produce unique barcode labels for the breast milk vials.
When the milk has been expressed into the barcoded vial, it is stored in the unit’s refrigerator, along with milk from other mums.
Matching and Alerting
The nurses scan their ID barcode as a record
the barcode on the milk vial and the baby’s wristband. The scanner will then confirm a match on the screen. If not a match, the scanner will also confirm and record this.
As the expressed milk is labelled, scanned and stored, an accurate electronic record of the transaction is available through the system’s dashboard, which can be incorporated into Microsoft® Excel.
