Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Peripheral neuropathies and loss of skin integrity associated with malpositioning in patients undergoing surgery are common adverse events in the OR. Perioperative pressure ulcers also remain a widespread problem. Due to the lack of studies quantifying the risk factors, etiology, or prevalence of these injuries, we undertook a prospective evaluation of these injuries as well as an assessment of a project to reduce their incidence. To accomplish this, a collaborative multidisciplinary task force which drew on the expertise of nurses, anesthesiologists, and surgeons alike in order to measure and ultimately reduce the incidence of these preventable perioperative injuries, was formed.
