Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: In perioperative care, there is a close link between communication and safety. There are five to six individuals performing parallel processes that comprise the team in an operating room (OR) for all surgeries. The demanding environment and communication breakdown of the OR has been blamed for failure to function as a team. The word team is used so often and loosely that it has lost it's true meaning. A team is defined by its members interactions, communication, and shared goals. This briefing/debriefing tool is intended to unify the team, creating a culture of safety for patient care. It is intended to avoid communication failures that often occur in the OR that potentially could have serious effects on system processes, such as team inefficiency or tension, resource waste, case delay, and procedural error. The tool is a multi phase process focused on the elements required for the team briefing/debriefing process. It unites the team during all three phases with participants contributing throughout the process; with each phase taking less than two minutes to perform. Its design meets both national and world organizations requirements for the time out/briefing surgical checklist. The goal is for everyone to be aware of each team members role for the case, identify any potential safety issues, and review planned procedures. It is an opportunity for questions, to clarify misunderstandings in an atmosphere devoid of the tension, and achieve a safe patient environment. Problems identified and documented on this tool have a clear path to resolution.
