Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The primary objective of our project was to increase composite process and appropriate care scores related to the Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP) in our Quality Measure Performance Report. There are approximately 22% of preventable deaths attributed to postoperative complications. Surgical site infections (SSIs) are one of the complications that occur in approximately 500,000 patients annually. Surgical patients that develop SSI have higher mortality. Surgical patients are 20 times more likely to have a DVT (deep vein thromboembolism). Our leadership team decided to create a committee to help with complying with the core measures related to SCIP. Our members include departmental directors, pharmacists, nursing, educators, informatics specialists, and infection prevention nurses. In the beginning, we met weekly to help establish flow processes and needs assessments in all areas. We implemented many educational techniques, which included posters, in services, bulletin boards, and a computer based module that was mandated to be taken by everyone in the surgical services department. Revisions on forms, such as reservation and surgical schedules, helped highlight our SCIP patients. Creation and integration of a standard physician SCIP order set for each specialty was approved by the committee. Review of a missed opportunity report monthly helped identify areas for improvement. After reviewing our data, we noticed a increase in our composite process score of 5.3% and a 10.98 increase in our appropriate care scores since we began this committee in 2008.
