Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: In early 2010, Idaho's unemployment rate reached 10% and an increase in homeless population ensued. Both situations contributed to a greater population of medically underserved. Several private, public, local, state, and federal medical programs exist for underserved surgical patients. However, many people are unable to obtain the surgical care needed or end up in the emergency department to receive surgery. Unfortunately, both may lead to advanced disease processes that increase morbidity, mortality, cost, and length of stay. On September 18, 2010, the Surgical Outreach Program (SOP) partnered with International Surgical Missions, The Terry Reilly Health Clinics, and St. Lukes Health System to provide outpatient surgery to patients in need. Giving to others is hallmark to making a difference. However, many hospital staff may not have financial or family arrangements allowing them to travel out of country for medical missions. The SOP cared for six surgical patients locally with involvement by more than 50 employees across a spectrum of departments. Partnership for care was achieved with five surgeons, four nurse anesthetists, an anesthesiologist, a pathologist, a radiologist, and allied health providers. In addition, outpatient pharmacy, food and nutrition services, patient financial services counselors, and pathology supported the first Surgical Outreach Program.
