Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: On the day of surgery, perioperative patients may receive certain invasive procedures that are in addition to the actual surgical procedure. Two common adjunct interventions at our facility are the administration of regional and local blocks that occur prior to the prepping and draping for surgery. The team at the University of Rochester Medical Centers Ambulatory Surgery Center assessed the inherent risks of these interventions and determined that a lack of verification processes represents potential for errors. The team then set out to develop protocols for both the preoperative and intraoperative administration of blocks that addresses the issues of proper site verification and medication administration. The expected outcome was to eliminate the potential for errors to help ensure a safer progression of care. Standardized protocols were developed that enabled each team member to understand their roles and responsibilities when blocks are administered prior to prepping and draping for surgery. The expected outcome for these interventions has been evidenced by an absence of errors made during the administration of blocks. The implication for perioperative nursing is increased safety. Risks for patients who receive non-surgical invasive procedures can be reduced when aspects of the traditional surgical pause are applied.
