Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Clinical Issue: Due to a limited number of trained labor and delivery (L &D) technicians available to scrub all emergency c-sections, it was decided that all L &D RNs should be trained in the role of the scrub. Description of Team: The interdisciplinary team (OR educator, L &D clinical managers, education department, and L &D educator) planned a training class specific to the L &D operating room needs. Preparation and Planning: A two-day course was designed specifically for the L &D nurses; staff were required to have five clinical experiences (two observations and three independent scrubbing with preceptor). Their clinical experiences included c-sections and equivalent cases (abdominal hysterectomies, etc.). Assessment: L &D RNs were not able to perform the scrub role in emergency c-sections. It was assessed that the RNs needed to safely perform the scrub role. Implementation: Provided 14 classes averaging five to six staff RNs. The classes were four hours of didactic and 12 hours of hands-on training, including observation and demonstration. Additional training tools were developed (flash cards of pictures of c-section instruments, mayo stand set-up reference list, etc.). Outcome: Forty staff L &D nurses completed the class. The nurses are continuing their clinical training experiences. Twenty-five percent of the nurses are fully trained. Implications: Nursing implications are to provide safe patient care during emergency c-section procedure. The L &D staff nurses were given clinical scrubbing tools to create a safe environment for the perioperative obstetric procedure.
