LacSure® is a system to provide safe collection, storage and management of mother’s milk at the hospital bedside.

EBM (Expressed Breast Milk), like blood is considered a bodily fluid. When the wrong milk is administered to the wrong patient this can lead to many complications in terms of the emotional and physical risks of virus transmission, not to mention the potential financial cost to the hospital.

LacSure® is a system to provide safe collection, storage and management of mother’s milk at the hospital bedside.

EBM (Expressed Breast Milk), like blood is considered a bodily fluid. When the wrong milk is administered to the wrong patient this can lead to many complications in terms of the emotional and physical risks of virus transmission, not to mention the potential financial cost to the hospital.
These effects are summarised below:

Emotional cost of breast milk errors in parents

  • Additional stress to already emotional parents of neonatal patients.

Physical cost of breast milk errors

  • Requirement for blood and breast milk samples from each mother concerned.
  • The infant may require intramuscular injection of antiviral drugs.

Financial cost of breast milk errors

  • Valuable staff time lost due to investigating mis-feed incidents.
  • Cost of laboratory sampling required to test for potential virus transmission.
  • Cost of prophylactic antiviral medication.
  • Potential threat of litigation.

Objectives of the System

The primary objective of the LacSure Breast Milk Management System is to ensure the correct milk is fed to the correct infant. This will be accomplished through Positive Patient Identification (PPI) at the bedside through the use of 2D barcodes and handheld technology.

The system will complement the best practices and processes already followed in hospitals and will allow care givers to work with confidence in administering milk in a busy clinical environment.

The Breast Milk Management system will meet the following objectives and functions.

  • To allow for the safe collection and labelling of Expressed Breast Milk (EBM).
  • To ensure that the correct unit of milk is fed to the correct infant using barcode and handheld computing technology.
  • To save and transfer all data transactions to a centralised database and to allow for full traceability of all electronic transactions.
  • To reduce the need for paperwork relating to collection and feed records.
  • To track the movement and storage of milk within the clinical area.
  • To allow collection units to be split into smaller feed units.
  • To alert the user to any discrepancy between the feed unit and the intended patient recipient before the feed commences.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

When the decision to treat is made, the patient is given a MyPreOp patient card detailing both their hospital’s contact information and concise instructions on how to create their account and access the assessment program.

After creating an Ultramed account using their date of birth and unique NHS number, patients are directed to the Ultraprep landing page and navigate to the MyPreOp program. Here, they complete a comprehensive assessment of their general health and medical history via a straightforward, user-friendly interface. Once the MyPreOp assessment is completed, the patient submits it digitally to the healthcare provider performing their operation as an automatically generated Clinical Summary, to be reviewed by a registered nurse or similarly qualified member of the preoperative assessment team.

The clinical summary report automatically highlights any areas of concern, allowing the pre-emptive identification of any additional tests patients may need as well as flagging up those with complex co-morbidities who will need further face-to-face consultations with the nurse.
