Nursing & Patient Safety in the Operating Room

Nursing & Patient Safety in the Operating Room

The safety of staff and patients are paramount for any health care organization. With increased market competition, safety for patients and staff has become a critical component for turn-key health care, as well as a vital part of the recruiting effort in an ever-changing, demanding marketplace.

This comprehensive outline was designed to organize the properties of health care safety in the operating room, addressing the levels of patient safety concerns and placing them into a graphic to help outline policy.

As nursing professionals spearhead the cause, this model/chart can be used as a tool to support organizational leadership in creating or improving safety from the top down, for both internal and external customers.
