M A R C H 2 0 2 1 • O U T P A T I E N T S U R G E R Y . N E T • 13 ANNUAL GATHERING Throw 'Policy Parties' to Review Periop Paperwork E very January, managers from the OR, anesthesia and central sterile gather to review our hospitals' policies and procedures in order to make needed changes. Because representatives from many different disciplines attend these "policy parties," we have all the necessary resource materials and expertise available to make updates. We order lunch and work until the job is done. Those of us who attend the sessions enjoy the time and appreciate how produc- tive we're able to work as a group. Once the policies are updated, we have individual staff members sign in-service sheets to acknowledge they were informed of the changes, which are further reinforced dur- ing daily huddles and monthly team meetings. Rhonda Sebastian, MSN, RN, CNOR UPMC Horizon and UPMC Jameson Farrell/New Castle, Pa. sebarr@upmc.edu INVITE ONLY Clinical leaders within University of Pittsburgh Medical Center team up for a productive day of updating policies.
