Smart pumps with dose error reduction software (DERS) can reduce adverse drug events, but alert fatigue can result in staff resistance and unsafe workarounds. In this study, a pediatric hospital aimed to increase use of smart pumps with DERS from 46% compliance at baseline to 75%. Updating the drug library resulted in the largest increase in compliance and decrease in alerts.
