Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Yale New Haven Hospital identified that it was critical to the field of neurosurgery to have the most cutting-edge technology available. The institution partnered with an MR company to design and build a first of its kind 3T MR and a combined MR/Angiography operating room (OR). This technology provides the opportunity to perform surgical procedures and the ability to scan intraoperatively and determine with precision and in detail the success of tissue/tumour removal. This prevents the patient from having to be moved between the OR and the MR suite, as well as having to leave an OR on standby. A team of hospital administrators, project managers, surgical staff, IT, radiological, and MR nursing leadership and clinical staff, design and construction and numerous perioperative staff, collaborated with a MR company to successfully develop, design, and open the new suite in June 2010. The team used research, traditional construction design formats, site visits, simulation, mocks, forecasting, marketing, and collaboration to achieve the goals as was required. Significant focus on education and training in MR safety in the OR was performed for all team members and individuals identified as requiring to work in this area and suite. The MR ORs have been functional for the past four months and there is already a steady growth in volume overall, as well as an increase in MR intraoperative use. The staff and teams have been well integrated and understand the safety measures that must occur on a consistent basis. The implications for perioperative nursing include new competency for working in the MR OR suites, safety measures needed to protect patients and staff, the ability to collaborate, and the opportunity to provide a new standard of care for neuro-surgical patients with improved outcomes.
