Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress] Cultural diversity within an organization strengthens its overall environment for both staff and patients. When two or more organizations merge, the key to success depends on the identification of individual traits within the organization, the acceptance of cultural differences, and the willingness to create a new culture for the best environment possible. A systems tool was used to identify specific patient populations, diversity of staff, and individual characteristics of operating rooms in the Army, Navy, and Air Force, to capture preliminary data for analysis before merging these organizations into the new Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
