With a view to set benchmark in patient safety, The Infusion Nurses Society (INS) developed an app called the ‘INS India Android App’. Dr KK Kalra, CEO of National Accreditation Board for Hospitals (NABH) launched the app during the fifth INS National Conference, which was held in the city recently.

The app connects nurses who are members of INS and apprises them of news and practices. While congratulating the nursing fraternity, Dr Kalra acknowledged their work, emphasising the fact that this would bring all nursing professionals on a uniform level of knowledge and skills.

“This app will facilitate sharing of ideas, access to standards, and will give updates on advances in infusion therapy. The app would help INS reach out to its members as well as non-members in building an eco-system of infusion standards across India. It is also seen as a positive step under the central government’s ‘Health for All’ banner, as well as under the state government’s initiatives,” he said.

“With the launch of the app, we are feeding into our theme for the year: ‘Compliance to Infusion Standards: A Pathway to Patient Safety’,” said Dr Col Binu Sharma, President, INS-India. Later, the panelists spoke on the theme of the conference.

“The Annual Conference will continue to offer strategies and education to help reduce IV infusion errors and establish best practices in the country. I am sure the nursing community will not miss this occasion to immerse in groundbreaking practice and science of infusion safety,” said Varun Khanna – Managing Director-BD India.

“Healthcare in today’s world primarily boils down to therapies through infusion for a majority of patients. Preventing pain, medication errors, complications, adverse reactions and promoting safe infusion practices with early identification and efficient monitoring become inseparable components of qualitative care,” said Shubhada Sakurikar, AVP, Nurse Education, Apollo Knowledge Vertical, Hyderabad, and INS 2016 Organising Secretary.
