Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Surgical services leadership and staff will support endeavors to gain/improve clinical expertise, increase technical advantage, and actively participate in the organization's marketing strategies. On December 28, 2009, the daVinci robot came to Chambersburg Hospital. There were mixed emotions about its purchase, but who can argue the organization's vision of being the area's health care provider of choice that offers a full continuum of integrated state-of-the-art services that are high quality, accessible, and cost-effective. Nursing readily embraced this and, true to its calling, surgical services leadership and staff geared up to focus on accreditation requirements, physical room set up, training, and team building. Proactively, they also added the surgical operational committee that takes care of every specialty that wants to use the expensive and complicated tool. The urology robotic teams' growth is phenomenal. A number of challenges seasoned them to be expert robotic teachers. Financially, Chambersburg Hospital has modified some organizational structures to suit its needs. This 239 bed capacity community hospital is going strong with its robotic champion, Dr. Kambiz Tajkarimi, tirelessly coaching the surgical department to be a center of excellence. February 11, 2010, marked the first robotic assisted procedure. Its debut was scheduled amidst the rage of the back-to-back snowstorms that paralyzed the area's major thoroughfares causing delays but not cancellations. As of July 2010, Chambersburg Hospital boasts of 30 robotic assisted surgical procedures from urology, GYN, and general surgeries.
