Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: The prevention of retained surgical sponges requires good communication among perioperative personnel and the consistent application of standardized processes of care. Ten health care entities (six single hospitals, three hospital systems, and one state hospital association) joined the NoThing Left Behind initiative to eliminate retained surgical sponges in all ORs. Data from implementation training, human factors teaching, audits, and event analyses evaluated the reliability of the Sponge ACCOUNTing system. It takes almost three years to successfully reach zero retained sponges for at least one year. Multi-stakeholder OR cultural adaptation is necessary for successful prevention of retained sponges.
