Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: At University Hospital St. Paul, a case cart system was not available due to space constraints. We perform approximately 150 cases each week and pulling cases takes valuable time away from the nursing staff that could best be applied to performing patient care activities. A vacated rehab area was located as available space and is now being renovated to include supply receiving, case cart pulling, and staging areas. This project requires the cooperation of the operating room (OR), facilities support, sterile processing, and supply chain management staff. Workflow and process changes are necessary to make the new system successful. The outcome will free up OR nursing staff to provide clinical patient care rather than pulling cases and checking case carts. The project impacts inventory, resource utilization, staffing, processes, and supply chain management. Current and future state workflows must be identified and developed to ensure that case carts are correctly picked, staged, stored, and in the correct location as needed for patient care. An added bonus is additional storage space for OR equipment once supplies are relocated in the case cart area. We are using a team approach to create a process that will provide a positive outcome for our patients, staff, and physicians.
