Surgery Teams Across the U.S. Take Time Out in the Operating Room
Date:6/12/2009

will remind and teach surgical staff members to focus on the safety of each and every patient they see. We are proud of this initiative and the commitment from across the country."

Dozens of videos were reviewed by clinical editors of AORN recommended practices and evaluated according to criteria set for compliance using either the WHO check list or the components of the Universal Protocol depending on the facility's respective procedure. The judges selected ten videos that were strong in meeting each component of the check list and, while minor discrepancies from the AORN recommended practices were considered as tie-breakers in the assessment, they did not prevent a video from being recommended for use on the AORN web site.

The 2009 National Time Out Day videos are:

Children's Hospital - Boston

Exempla St. Joseph Hospital - Denver

Florida Hospital - Orlando

Jennersville Regional Hospital - Westgrove, Penn.

Marion General Hospital - Marion, Ohio

Memorial University Medical Center -- Savannah, Ga.

NYU Langone -- New York

St. Joseph Mercy - Howell, Mich.

University Hospital -- Cincinnati

White River Medical Center - Batesville, Ark.

The ten facilities will each receive a copy of AORN Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices, 2009 edition as a gift from ClearCount Medical Solutions, Inc.

This year, AORN collaborated to promote awareness of time out with the American Nurses Association, the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities, the Council on Surgical & Perioperative Safety, and The Joint Commission to remind professionals, health care providers, and administrators t
