Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Ortho Surgical Scheduling Team Member names/positions: Director of perioperative services, a practice manager representing preoperative testing, an OR systems administrator, the clinical advisor for orthopedics, an OR scheduler, a CPD supervisor, the clinical manager of scheduling operations, an ortho scheduling admin, two ortho surgeons, the administration director, and the manager of orthopedics, as well as a management engineer. We had an opportunity to improve the orthopedic surgical case scheduling process from the surgeon's initial booking through the day of surgery. By doing so, we could improve patient safety, as well as patient, surgeon, and staff satisfaction. The goals of this project were: Develop an efficient, accurate and timely orthopaedic scheduling process, and establish open communication and collaboration to accommodate orthopedic patient bookings in a timely manner with complete information. Our most important concern was elimination of the potential for patient harm. By implementing an improved real-time electronic booking process, we eliminated the occurrence of side/site errors. Our key accomplishments include: Developed an efficient, accurate, and timely orthopaedic scheduling process, reduced day-before and day-of cancellations by 73% (from 15% to 4%), reduced instances of changing sequence of cases by 90% (from 20% to 2%), eliminated the inability to get ortho cases onto the schedule for four (4) consecutive months, eliminated loss of special equipment information by creating surgeon on-line booking system, provided block for urgent/emergent plastic ortho hand trauma to accommodate Tuesday clinic and weekend traumas within the same week of injury, and facilitated PAT faxing/scanning project and online booking Improved the relationship between OR scheduling and orthopaedics to one that promotes collaboration.
