gong in April 2016, we now have 24 gongs spread throughout our cath labs, operating rooms and endoscopy suites. A good gong is easier to come by than you might think; we found ours — it's 14 inches in diameter and is inscribed with the Chinese characters for "Peace is here" — in a Staples office-supplies catalog, for about $75. The accompanying mallet comes with a rubber head and a porous wooden handle, but we had our maintenance depart- ment replace the handle with that of a surgical hammer so it meets AORN standards.
