Smart Pump Events - Process for Review of Error and Event Logs

Hello everyone,

Our organization is actively evaluating our processes around smart pump events in an effort to improve our standardized response.

In your hospital/system/organizations, who is responsible for reviewing both the error and event logs from the pump and communicating out that information after a adverse event that involved a smart pump?

For context, our system utilizes Alaris pumps and currently has teams from Clinical Informatics, Clinical Engineering, and Medication Safety all involved after an event.

Thank you for your insight!
