Page 34 PHYSICIAN RELATIONS Christine Woodman, BSN, MSA WARM WELCOME Most surgeons are interested in breaking open supply packs, getting their hands on the equipment they'll be using, meeting your team and seeing where they'll be operating. Make Your New Docs Feel Welcome Surgeon orientation improves teamwork and outcomes in the OR. It wasn't uncommon for us to meet a new surgeon literally minutes before his first case at our facility was to begin. Not the best scenario for successful clinical outcomes or to make new docs feel like welcome members of your team. Now we set up times for our new surgeons to visit the surgical department, meet the surgical team and take tours of the facility well in advance of the mornings when they'll scrub in for real.
