AORN Go Clear Award - Surgical Smoke-Free Recognition Program

Congratulations to Our Go Clear Award Recipients

AORN partnered with Medtronic through the AORN Foundation to create the AORN Go Clear Award—a comprehensive Surgical Smoke-Free Recognition Program for facilities that want to ensure a smoke-free environment for their perioperative team and patients.

Congratulations to the facilities who’ve successfully completed the program and made the commitment to a surgical smoke-free environment. We commend you for making your patients, team, and entire facility’s health a top priority.

We recognize and honor your commitment.
