Workshop Topics

  • Pressure Injury Prevention. Learn to prevent this common problem that causes significant pain to patients and adds to health care delivery costs.
  • Flexible Endoscope Processing. When is the last time you took a deep dive into your flexible endoscope processing process? Do your competency checklists contain all of the steps to prevent the transmission of infection? Attendees will be provided the most up-to-date information and tools that they can take back to their facility and implement immediately.
  • Prevention of Retained Surgical Items. Does the thought of being summoned into court for a retained item keep you up at night? Join us for a mock trial to see if you can identify the top actions to prevent a retained sponge. Does your current policy contain all of the barriers needed to prevent an RSI event? Learn how other hospitals found out the hard way that even by following the policy, they experienced a Sentinel Event.
