Developing a protocol for tracking errors and minimizing their effects is key to reducing the number and severity of adverse events and reducing errors in surgery. Standardization methods have been found to improve new staff training and resulted in fewer delays, fewer errors and problems being caught before, or during, their occurrence. This session provides a focused discussion of the influences of standardized protocols for communication and operations on infection control and safety in surgery.
This session will enable attendees to:
Measure performance & operations that translate into financial savings.
