NeoChild agrees with the Joint Commission’s recommendation to cease use of standard luer syringes for oral medications or enteral feedings. In addition, NeoChild is proud to provide the ‘The SafeChild System®’, a product developed with a “designed incompatibility,” as urged by the Joint Commission to prevent dangerous misconnections of tubes and catheters.
The following are resources that explain the need for hospitals to use non-compatible lines.  Please take the time to review these important documents to make sure your hospital is doing all that is possible to prevent these tragic occurrences from happening:
