Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The Joint Commission National Patient Safety Goals require standardized hand-off communication among caregivers. Our policy included all aspects of hand-off's in surgical services but had no acronym or procedure that would assure consistent, reliable, comprehensive communication would take place across the perioperative continuum. The Surgical Services Clinical Practice Council (SSCPC) was charged with the task of developing an easy to understand implementable mnemonic policy and procedure. The SSCPC consists of staff nurses from pre-op, surgery, PACU, post-op, managers, and a director, with all three hospitals in the system represented. Using the AORN Hand-Off "Tool Kit" and Recommended Practice for Transfer of Patient Care Information, I-PACE was developed for use in surgical services. I-PACE I-Introduction P-Patient, Procedure, Problem A-Assessment, Actions C-Continuing Treatments, Changes, Counts E-Evaluation. An easily understood template describing the components was laminated and placed in all patient care areas of surgical services. A kick-off celebration to introduce "SPEAK TO ME IN I-PACE was held at all three hospitals. The policy and procedure was presented with time allotted for questions and answers. A written component was introduced with the policy to be used if the patient's condition warranted additional information. The ultimate goal of improving patient care and enhancing patient safety was accomplished as evidenced by staff acceptance and use of I-PACE. The policy, format, transfer form, and charter for the SSCPC will be included on the poster. The policy includes a detailed description of how each area implements I-PACE.
