Sometimes a surgical team just clicks, especially when you have a lot of experience working together. But sometimes members of a surgical team don't have the long term working relationships that allow them to anticipate what people will do before they do it. Surgical Safety Institute's training emphasizes teamwork and communication, so that even new relationships in the operating room are intuitive, as if you've worked together for years.
It feels good to do your job well.
And while Surgical Safety Institute training is critical, the tools we put in place are just as important. Our Surgical Safety Screens™ provide centralized information so that everyone in the room knows what they need to know. Standardized briefs and Surgical Safety Checklists™ reduce the chance for human error in routine tasks. When the unexpected crops up, you have evidence-based emergency checklists at your fingertips. Those checklists prompt caregivers on certain functions, but they don't tell any trained professional what to do or how to do it. Pre-op and post-op procedures are standardized and streamlined, so there's less time wasted and less opportunity to make mistakes.
