Title:
I CARE: A Voice from the Main Operating Room
Author(s):

Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Patient and family satisfaction are national issues that impact the perioperative nurse. Surgery is difficult for everyone involved and, as perioperative nurses, the entire family becomes our concern. Unfortunately, we do not always have the time to develop a strong connection and needed another sounding board to show that for a brief moment the patient has become one of our family members. The patient is in a very vulnerable state and in the hands of the perioperative family. But to the scared family and patient, we are strangers. Hopeful of a speedy recovery, the team cares for the patient as if they were our family. The main operating room perioperative team created a scrapbook to compassionately connect with patients using personal thoughts and ideas that would be said if more time allowed. Since its inception at the beginning of 2009, it has been well received and adopted by other units. As an advocate for the patient, it is our duty to provide a means of connection with their families. The presence of the main OR's scrapbook in our waiting room is a means of addressing this issue. It is my goal that all surgical areas will emulate the idea.
