The operating room presents an environment for many different patient safety issues to arise. It is important for nurses to understand the importance of these issues, and to take action to improve patient safety in their healthcare organization. This course will address surgical site infections, perioperative hypothermia, retained surgical items, wrong site surgery, perioperative pressure injuries, catheter-acquired urinary tract infections, central venous catheter infections, venous thromboembolism and medication errors. The goal of this course is to condense down recommendations to help make it easy for you to become a patient safety champion in your OR!
