Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The purpose of our project was to implement and monitor a surgical site infection (SSI) teaching plan to all of our elective surgical patients when there is a deficit in the amount of patients seen in our pre-admission department. We needed to comply with this NPSG and help educate our surgical patients prior to surgery about the importance of preventing SSIs. Patients who are physically and psychologically prepared for surgery tend to have better surgical outcomes. Our surgical leadership team, which consists of our administrative director, nurse managers, charge nurses, nurse educator, infection prevention nurse, and informatics nurse, meet monthly to discuss the challenges we face in meeting TJC requirements with this NPSG. The team reviewed the NPSG and developed a timeline and workplan to help achieve success in meeting this NPSG. We created a tool that incorporated all of TJC requirements. We educated staff nurses in the following areas: PACU, SPU, OR, and PAT. The education included verbal and written explanation to all the patients. The informatics nurse created a report to allow us to trend the compliance with all elective cases. We are currently still reviewing data monthly but have noticed a definite increase in our compliance.
