New for 2014

Introduction of an updated evidence rating model created by AORN. The new model signifies the strength and quality of all the available evidence while seamlessly complementing the recommended practices and the perioperative environment.

With the change in the evidence rating model, four of the recommended practices from the 2013 book were revised (Prevention of Transmissible Infections, Safe Environment of Care, Sterile Technique, and Sterilization), plus four new or significantly updated recommended practices (all with new evidence ratings) appear in this edition:

  • Sharps Safety
  • Care of Patients Undergoing Pneumatic Tourniquet-assisted Procedures
  • Selection and Use of Packaging Systems for Sterilization
  • Environmental Cleaning

Also added is detailed information for implementing the recommended practices in free-standing and office-based ambulatory surgery centers. The following recommended practices contain the new ambulatory supplements: 

  • Prevention of Transmissible Infections
  • Medication Safety
  • Prevention of Retained Surgical Items
  • Radiation Safety
  • Specimen Handling
  • Tissue Banking
  • Environment of Care

Reserve your copy today before the price goes up.

Your credit card will not be charged until the book is shipped (January 2014).
