Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Developing and implementing a robotic surgery program in a community hospital can be a daunting task. While much information has already been published regarding the development of a successful program, this presentation will highlight some specific challenges faced by our organization and the measures that were taken to address these challenges. Particular attention will be devoted to those related to surgeon credentialing, instrument storage, and patient hand positioning. We took delivery of this extraordinary technology the last week of December 2009. We performed our first procedure on April 27, 2010. What happened in between? Faced with the robot and a multitude of cardboard boxes, one of our first tasks was to uncrate, inventory, and find a place to store all of this equipment. We developed a divided drawer system to contain the individual sterilized instruments. Alternative trays were developed because the supplied company trays were not compatible with the newer HD system. Credentialing criteria was set by the Medical Executive Committee at five proctored cases on March 2, 2010. Proctors need to go through an extensive application process. Once established proctors were on board, we developed a form for them to fill out after each case, eliminating the need for them to remember to send it to the medical staff office. While there are many positioning aides commercially available, none addressed our concerns related to hand positioning. Nursing ingenuity, combined with knowledge of functional anatomic positioning, enabled us to develop our own technique utilizing available materials.
