Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: You might think that the implementation of a case cart system would be an easy transition for the OR and CSS department. This project became a life learning experience in how NOT to implement any program, especially a case cart system. You hear about these things and wonder "what were they thinking" and that is exactly what happened here. The facility was not the problem, the newly constructed design of the CSS department was not the problem. The problem was the way we attempted to implement the program. We did not include the end-users, nor ask for their suggestions. So the end result was an almost-failed attempt to implement something that seemed so right for all the right reasons: safety of our surgical tools because they are sterile and safety of our surgical tools because they contain bioburden. Building a team of responsible and accountable OR and CSS staff members is an important piece of an implementation. Pushing a program out to the end-users without their buy-in can be a costly and demanding endeavor for any facilty.
