    Medfusion pump question

    Hey guys, Posting again because on my last post I meant a Medfusion pump and not an alaris pump. Anyways, during one of my shifts last week I administered caffeine via IV over a Medfusion pump. I entered the patient's weight. But, later, I second guessed if I entered the weight right. For reference, 8.8 kg vs .88kg. I have not had a baby that has weighed less than 1000 grams, hence why I am second guessing if I entered it correctly. My question is, do Medfusion pumps catch weight errors? Would it have alerted me if I was entering a weight with a dose that didn't make sense. I am 99.9% sure I entered the weight correctly, this is just for my own peace of mind. Lauren
