Procedure for Inpatient Settings: Preparing and Administering Medications Using ENFit®
Purpose: Outline the preparation and administration of medication doses using the ENFit system. This procedure will be applicable to patients of all age groups in inpatient settings. Background: The ENFit® system is the new ISO standard for enteral connectors. It promotes patient safety by reducing the risk of misconnection between unrelated systems by implementing a unique mechanical design. The syringes are available in 2 tip versions: low dose and standard dose.
In an effort to make enteral feeding safer, the ENFit connector was designed to give every enteral delivery set, extension set, syringe, and feeding tube a specific connector that is unique to enteral feeding.
