Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Clinical Issue: The purpose of this project was to identify the impact of implementing a robotic surgery program at an academic medical center, the University of Colorado Hospital, on patient throughput. Description of Team: A multidisciplinary team was conveyed that included surgeons, nurses working with the robot, the nursing director, and a financial analyst. Preparation and Planning: Implementing a robotic surgery program is a complex process requiring multiple resources, a financial commitment for a multi-million dollar capital investment, investment in new instruments and supplies, staff education and training, and ongoing optimization of this expensive resource. Assessment: Surgeons who were not using the robot expressed concern about increased length of OR time, increased operational expense, and increased turnover time. The goal was to measure the impact of implementing a robotic surgery program on patient throughput. Implementation: A retrospective analysis was done on the high volume robotic procedures during the first year of the robotic program. The analysis compared non-robotic procedures versus like surgical procedures using the robotic technique. The analysis for throughput evaluated patient hospital length of stay, procedural OR minutes, and OR turnover time. Outcome: The analysis will show procedures with reduced length of stay, increased OR time, and staffing impact to achieve a 30 minute OR turnover time. Implications for Perioperative Nursing: As robotic surgery expands to other surgical specialties, such as general surgery and ENT, this project will serve as a template for future analysis. Future evaluation of robotic surgery program will address overall financial impact and patient outcomes.
