Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Purpose: This initiative was developed to enhance the knowledge and collaboration among the perioperative team to improve patient safety in our operating room. Description: An eight room OR with one cysto room and three endo rooms determined that the RN staff communication and practice needed to be more unified. Two of the staff RNs approached the director of the unit to ask for permission to get the RNs together to begin discussing issues of concern. Permission was granted and the RN staff got together to formalize a purpose for the team and meeting times. It was determined that a meeting one time per month, at least, and adhoc would be planned. Agenda would consist of review policies, documentation, and preps, just to name a few topics. The organizer's assign different team members to present or research information on identified items of concern. Brainstorming is utilized to determine the best possible solution. All information utilized during the research process and decisions are placed into a notebook for future reference and for those unable to attend. Outcomes: The RNs work as a collaborative team on consistent documentation, consistent preps, consistent counts, on-call issues, c-section problems, and moderate sedation safety. These meetings have allowed for uninterrupted communication for the operating room RNs only. Our new RNs feel more cohesiveness with their peer group utilizing this process.
