SCRUB & LEARN
Monthly Safety Signs Serve as Helpful Reminders
If you want to remind your surgical team about an important infection prevention protocol or patient safety precaution or really, anything pertaining to proper surgical care hang signs near scrub sinks that convey the basic message. For example, last month we posted a reminder that the skin prep chlorhexidine gluconate needs to dry for 3 minutes before draping in order to be effective. Staff often congregate near the scrub sinks between cases and must stand for several minutes while preparing their hands for surgery. Why not post something useful for them to read while they're there?
