If you fly the friendly skies or happen to live near a busy flight path, you probably have some peace of mind knowing that pilots operate using strict checklist procedures. Pre-flight, during-flight, and post-flight checklists ensure the safety of the trip and make the entire process more efficient.
What does this have to do with surgery? A lot! It turns out the same principles can work for a lot of things, including surgical procedures. Here’s how checklists can save lives and mitigate risks and the ways the DinamicOR Back Table Solution can help.
How checklists can save lives and mitigate risk in surgery
There are a staggering 310 million major surgeries performed each year globally, roughly one intervention for every 25 people on the planet. And, unfortunately, mistakes can happen. But the good news is that nearly all surgical mistakes are preventable.
Medicine has become increasingly complex over the past several decades. The solution to managing the complexities of the operating environment is to introduce checklists. Using checklists in the operating room ensures nothing is forgotten. With a simple one-page checklist for each phase of a procedure – pre-surgery, during surgery, and post-surgery, a level of standardization is introduced to the process that ensures lower risk and better patient outcomes.
DinamicOR Back Table Solution helps providers create valuable checklists
Studies show that medical checklists save lives and reduce overall risks. So, what’s the best way to implement them? When it comes to your surgical processes, the DinamicOR Back Table Solution can help.
The DinamicOR Back Table Solution is a three-pronged approach to back table organization for operations rooms. It includes the adjustable DinamicOr Back Table, the Durable Drape, and the DinamicOR+ Workflow Management App.
Using the revolutionary Workflow Management App, your surgical team can create a variety of checklists that create repeatability and accountability in your operating room.
The Pre-Surgery Checklist helps operating room technicians mitigate risk by verifying that all required equipment is in the room and set up the same way each time. This ensures that surgical instruments are exactly where you expect them to be at a critical point in a procedure.
The DinamicOR+ Workflow Management App can also be used during and after surgery. Checklists can be created to document every step of a procedure to ensure the correct instruments are available. Further, a post-surgery checklist can verify that surgical instruments are sterilized and stored properly so that the room is ready to be turned over more quickly and efficiently for the next procedure.
