Preventing and Responding to Sentinel Events in Surgery
with Beverly A. Kirchner, RN, BSN
October 13, 2015 4:30pm PT

1 Nurse Contact Hour

ASORN Members: FREE!

Nonmembers - $45

Registration opens September 2

Description: This presentation will discuss sentinel events and how to prevent them while also covering how to identify gaps in processes that could lead to harm. We will review what events to report and who to report to so knowledge can be shared thus hopefully prevent someone else from harm. Patient safety is at the top of everyone's list in healthcare.  The accrediting agencies, government agencies, third party payers and employers are looking over our shoulders to make sure we, as providers of care, are constantly looking for ways to ensure each patient is safe from harm when they enter our perioperative world. We as providers are implementing ways to prevent harm to patients because no one goes into medicine to harm another person. 

Educational Objectives:
1. Define the term "Sentinel Event".

2. Identify potential "Sentinel Events" that are reported.

3. Discuss ways to prevent a "Sentinel Event" in the OR.

H&P for Your ASC: Considerations for the Ophthalmic Patient with Robert Welch, MSN, NP

Recorded July 29, 2014 4:30pm PT/7:30pm ET

Today's ophthalmic nursing staff is challenged to help streamline the surgical process for the patient, surgeon, and facility. An important feature of the surgical process is the required preoperative surgical assessments document or History and Physical (H&P). Nursing staff, anesthesia teams and ancillary staff utilize the information found within an H&P to plan for special needs of the patient and to help identify areas of risk throughout the peri-surgical process.

During this webinar, we will be discussing the purpose of the H&P, whom can perform an H&P, the content contained within an H&P. We will also discuss the utilization, indications and overutilization of preoperative laboratory testing for the outpatient ophthalmic patient.

Objectives: 1. Understand the purpose of the pre-operation History and Physical. 2. Identify those whom are qualified to perform the pre-operation History and Physical. 3. Identify components of a complete pre-op History and Physical document.

Objectives: 1. Identify the rational for the change from ICD9s to ICD10s. 2. Discuss why this final ruling is so controversial. 3.
