Safety bundles are known to improve clinician adherence to guidelines and improve patient safety. This children’s hospital implemented a safe sleep bundle in all departments to reduce sudden unexpected infant deaths. Overall compliance with safe sleep guidelines increased from 9% to 72%. Three individual components also improved (head of bed flat, sleep space free of extra items, and caregiver education completed); one measure, centerline for infant in supine position, remained stable. The safe sleep bundle was shown to be effective in improving infant sleep environments.
