Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Surgical patients infected or colonized with multi-drug resistant organisms (MDRO) was our clinical focus. Our surgical services department recognized a lack of consistent isolation practices during the perioperative care of patients with MDRO, including Methicillin Resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium difficile (C. diff). Using Positive Deviance methodology, we uncovered staff driven solutions to standardizing contact precautions during the perioperative care of patients with MDRO's. Through a series of "Discovery & Action Dialogue" sessions, members from pre-op, OR, PACU, anesthesiology, surgeons, and infection prevention met to uncover staff solutions to communicating and implementing contact precautions. Based on feedback, we obtained from staff members during the discovery and dialogue sessions, we developed several techniques, including LEAN evaluation tool used to document problems and solutions, developed carts with isolation supplies specific to area, developed MDRO anesthesia cart, with reduced quantity of supplies, developed audit tool to document and reinforce compliance, as well as staff written policy and procedures. Solutions for implementing a standardized practice of using contact precautions does exist among our perioperative staff. Ownership of the solutions leads to sustained compliance with infection prevention practices and improving patient safety.
