It covers leadership actions and responsibilities, PPE, scheduling, preoperative assessment and testing, the operating room, postoperative care, environmental cleaning, sterilization and self-care.
The playbook is available free to subscribers of eGuidelines Plus, AORN's online platform for the most current Guidelines for Perioperative Practice and hundreds of implementation and clinical tools. Resources include Guideline Quick Views, Policy & Procedure Templates, customizable Competency Verification Tools, Key Takeaways, Case Studies and much more.
