Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: One hundred and fifty years on and contemporary nurses have much still to do to ensure that the 'very elements of nursing' are known and delivered reliably and effectively across perioperative care to assure optimum outcomes for patients. Failure to get the basics right can result in unacceptable harm to patients and significant waste across health systems. Perioperative nurses must do the right thing, first time every time, and take pride in the privilege of being called a nurse. Whether involved in direct care or the leadership and supervision of team members, perioperative nurses must close the loop by actively measuring the quality of care given. Measurement for improvement can provide assurance and confidence to the profession and the public that patients are safe in our care. The 'freedom to be' creates opportunity to energize for excellence. Delivering excellence for patients starts with 'me' and with 'you' and requires purposeful and deliberate action. Delivering excellence is based on positive role modeling and clinical leadership. Achieving excellence requires each of us, independent of role, grade, or level of authority to be in the momentà and choose to act and be counted.
