Performing proper hand hygiene and surgical hand antisepsis is essential to reducing the rates of health care-associated infections, including surgical site infections. The updated AORN "Guideline for hand hygiene" provides guidance on hand hygiene and surgical hand antisepsis, the wearing of fingernail polish and artificial nails, proper skin care to prevent dermatitis, the wearing of jewelry, hand hygiene product selection, and quality assurance and performance improvement considerations. This article focuses on key points of the guideline to help perioperative personnel make informed decisions about hand hygiene and surgical hand antisepsis...

Patient transfers between the OR and intensive care unit are high-risk events. Previous studies regarding mechanisms to improve these transfers do not account for the perspectives of family members or patients. Using transfer-of-care reports from health care providers, we performed a qualitative study of patient and family member perspectives by transcribing, coding, and analyzing seven interviews using hermeneutic cycling, which revealed three main themes: communication, clinical interaction, and clinician demeanor...

Epidural or spinal anesthesia-related infections cause serious and devastating morbidity and mortality. The possible infectious complications of neuraxial anesthesia have become better understood in the past 10 years. We assessed information from published case series, studies, randomized controlled trials, and retrospective cohort studies to determine the rate of neuraxial infection and to evaluate iatrogenic causes of infection. The use of sterile gowning appears to be a factor associated with the decreased infection rates noted in some studies...

Unplanned perioperative hypothermia is a common surgical risk. Unplanned hypothermia is defined as a body temperature below 36° C (96.8° F) during any phase of the perioperative period. Perioperative nurses at a Midwestern tertiary pediatric hospital developed an evidence-based clinical practice guideline (CPG) designed to maintain normothermia for the pediatric surgical population. This CPG outlined standard thermoregulation nursing interventions and required the consistent use of a temporal artery thermometer...

Remote video auditing, a method first adopted by the food preparation industry, was later introduced to the health care industry as a novel approach to improving hand hygiene practices. This strategy yielded tremendous and sustained improvement, causing leaders to consider the potential effects of such technology on the complex surgical environment. This article outlines the implementation of remote video auditing and the first year of activity, outcomes, and measurable successes in a busy surgery department in the eastern United States...

Martha A Carter
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) is a complex, highly technical surgical procedure that can offer hope for children born with congenital heart defects. The procedure may only briefly prolong a life, has limited potential for decreasing mortality, and may lead to serious complications, however. Perioperative nurses play an important role in caring for the child who requires ECMO. They are involved in assessing the child, implementing the plan of care, and facilitating communication between the child's family members and the health care team...

Lisa Spruce
Pressure injury prevention is essential to patient safety in the perioperative setting. Perioperative nurses should be knowledgeable about the risk factors for pressure injury and the safety precautions that can be taken to prevent this injury from occurring. Perioperative nurses should be able to identify patients who are at high risk for developing a pressure injury. Perioperative patients are at risk for developing pressure injuries because they can experience intense or prolonged pressure during lengthy surgical procedures, may have increased pressure on bony prominences from positioning, are exposed to friction or shear during transfer to the OR bed and positioning, and often have significant comorbidities...

Kristen Perrego
The mismanagement of regulated waste is a costly issue for many health care facilities. Our facility undertook a quality improvement project to determine whether increasing staff members' knowledge of regulated-waste management would reduce its mismanagement in the surgical setting. I designed a mandatory online learning module for all perioperative staff members and obtained consent from participants to use their test scores. I also designed pre- and posteducation audits to identify the total mass of regulated waste produced in the department and to categorize which items were nonregulated according to facility standards...
