Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Clinical Issue: Due to the limited number of trained staff in scope processing, the operating room (OR) was limited in providing available reprocessed scopes. Description of Team: The interdisciplinary team consisted of OR educator, OR assistant director, infection control department, safety, and OR staff (nurses and techs). The team planned for a training class specifically for the needs of the operating room. Preparation and Planning: The staff were selected based on experience, voluntary, or seniority level. The training consisted of reviewing DVDs of endoscopes, scope cleaning, operating the decontamination unit, review and completion of competency validation tools, and review of needed supplies and equipment. The staff were required to give three independent return demonstrations. Approximately 20 to 25 scopes are processed weekly. Assessment: There was limited number of trained scope processing staff available for the number of scopes needed for the OR. Implementation: Provided training to six staff nurses and techs. The classes were two hours didactic, in addition to the hands-on training with return demonstration. Outcome: Five staff have completed the training. The training is still ongoing for the remainder of selected staff. Implications: To provide the same standard of patient care by providing high level disinfected processed scopes to meet the needs of the OR.
