Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Clinical Issue: This 28 room operating room (OR) was experiencing difficulty with retained objects. There had been a history over a few years of several sentinel events. Upon investigation, it was determined that lack of communication was a key issue. The organization made the decision to adopt the TeamSTEPPS philosophy and send a team of 6six individuals for training. Description of Team: This team consisted of the chief medical officer, vice president of quality, an educator, the director of surgical services, the manager of surgicals services, and a charge nurse from the OR. It was important to have physician buy-in for this process. Preparation and Planning: Once this training occurred, classes were conducted for the medical staff, anesthesiologists, and all staff members in perioperative services. It has been determined that credential requirements for physicians will include TeamSTEPPS, and an annual refresher for the staff members will also occur. Assessment/Implementation: The process began with a survey given to the staff to determine their level of team comfort. A repeat of this survey will be given once all of the education is completed. A tool was also devised for staff to show what TeamSTEPPS tools they are using and with what frequency as they do their daily cases. Outcome: We have not had a sentinel event in one year, which we credit to the change in team atmosphere in the OR. Perioperative Outcomes: Provide a safe environment for all patients. All staff feel empowered to stop the procedure when they feel that there is a safety issue. Physicians and nurses working closely together to achieve the same goal.
