Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: How do you know what questions to ask when you are facing something you have never done before? And when the literature is not definitive? And when patient status is high risk to others? And when the safety of the staff is at risk? This is what we faced when asked to revise the CJD policy. Establishing the protocol for the potential CJD patient in the OR involved multiple specialties collaborating together, hours of discussing and researching and re-discussing, and time to educate the staff. After setting our guidelines in place, we ran a CJD drill and added to our protocol. We know we still have a long way to go, but feel we have started down the path toward Best Practice.
