Tune Up Your Turnovers With a Parallel Process

TURNOVER TASKS Everyone should be preparing for the next case at the same time.
“Think of it this way: You’ll get more done in a shorter time if everyone’s working on a piece of the process, than if everyone’s waiting for someone else to finish a job so they can start theirs. Every surgical team member was assigned specific, standardized tasks to carry out simultaneously, based on their availability and location. Even some staff outside of the OR were recruited to our goal of achieving less-than-30-minute turnovers.” Stephanie Rico, RN, CNOR, CST (www.outpatientsurgery.net)
