Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Purpose: The development of this team was for better communication, education, and preparation of our patients that are coming in for a total joint replacement. Description: A multidisciplinary committee was assembled to review the process of admission and discharge of our current total joint patients and their satisfaction. It was determined that many patients were not being seen prior to their admission and, therefore, not prepared enough to have a good postoperative outcome. An full-time employee (FTE) was dedicated to interview the patients prior to their surgical date where they get a one-on-one educational session. An educational booklet was also developed by the multidisciplinary team and given to each patient having a total joint replacement. Each patient is scheduled for a face-to-face interview with the pre-admission testing (PAT) nurse. At the preoperative visit, they are given comprehensive patient-friendly guides that educate them on the entire total joint replacement process. The guides explain and demonstrate pre- and postoperative strengthening exercises. The patient and family are educated on what to expect in the hospital, postoperative care, and home safety. Patients receive daily expectations and goals of rehab therapy and are encouraged to ask questions. Outcome: A comprehensive preoperative approach to patient assessment has helped the multidisciplinary team to understand as much as possible about the patients medical condition, home care, lifestyle goals, needs, and expectations. When patients have a clear understanding of what to expect from a total joint replacement, they have more realistic expectations following surgery and often have a better outcome. Patient satisfaction has improved with this approach due to better communication and education. Patients have someone they can contact with any questions that arise prior to or after surgery. The patients pain management has improved postoperatively, which allows for postoperative satisfaction, more rehab sessions, and shortened length of stay. There have been an increased number of patients interviewed during the pre-admission period, which lessens the day of surgery preparation time and shows a decrease in cancellations day of surgery.
