Enteral Nutrition Safety Toolkit

The purpose the Enteral Nutrition Safety Toolkit is to compile practice resources and to disseminate these tools to clinicians, administrators, educators, and researchers involved in the provision of EN. Patient safety is a national and international priority in all areas of healthcare. Promoting patient safety in the enterally fed patient is dependent on continuous surveillance and recognition of potential areas of patient harm and medical errors. Identifying areas for potential human error, administrative and organizational conditions that are conducive to error, and the patient’s own tolerance to EN need to be recognized by the healthcare practitioner.
