ECRI Institute, November 2016


ECRI has published its Top 10 Health Technology Hazards of 2017. Produced each year by ECRI Institute’s Health Devices Group, the list identifies the potential sources of danger that ECRI believes warrant the greatest attention for the coming year. The guidance that accompanies the list provides practical strategies for reducing the risks, making the list a practical tool for both establishing priorities and enacting solutions.

This year’s No. 1 hazard calls attention to infusion errors that can still occur when using large-volume infusion pumps. The Top 10 Health Technology Hazards for 2017 Executive Brief is available for free download at www.ecri.org/2017hazards.
