Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The purpose of this study was two-fold: (1) to help minimize the effects of the patient waiting experience and preoperative anxiety, and to increase the patients' level of satisfaction with the medical service by analyzing and identifying factors that delay the operative patient transfer processes and by pinpointing problems and improvement plans thereof; and (2) to ultimately help enhance the level of trust experienced by operative patients in the care provided by health care institutions. Planning and Implementation: (1) monitor the duration of the preoperative procedure described above on a daily basis by providing and checking the blanks in the nursing record for the time of patient arrival at the door of the OR and the begining time of administering analgesic; (2) when calling on the next patient scheduled for operation, a nurse should summon him/her ten minutes later than when conventionally being done; (3) ask for the operating surgeon's cooperation; (4) efficiently arrange and coordinate cleaning operations to prevent a delay in cleaning from affecting the patient's waiting time for their operation; and (5) obtain and post the average monthly waiting time and the percentage for each operating room, and produce posters to display and advertise the results. Outcome: During the pre-implementation stage, the average waiting time was 15.3 minutes, whereas that of the post-implementation stage stood at 5.7 minutes, which is a substantial reduction. Some of the OR's showed as many as 14 minutes of decrease in the waiting time.
