Abstract:
Abstract presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Surgical error is a major public health issue. A majority of inpatient adverse events are related to surgical care and more than half are preventable. Previously, an understanding about the etiology for surgical error was limited; however, recently a significant improvement in our understanding of these issues has come about from an analysis of malpractice claims data. During AORN Congress 2010, APS presented the surgical safety series which involved reviewing extensive data from the Harvard Medical Institutions. A year in the making, APS is eager to highlight the results from several leading organizations that have implemented Surgical Safety Series. Learn more on the how these organizations have implemented the curriculum and the results they have experienced within their perioperative teams. This is an exciting opportunity to learn the necessary tools to positively impact your patient safety initiatives.
