Nursing & Patient Safety in The Operating Room

Nurses play a major role in ensuring the health and safety of patients before, during and after surgery in the operating room. Several key factors can have a significant effect on how well the nurse is able to maintain the well-being of the patient in this often fast-paced and stressful environment. These include following evidence-based preparation procedures, communicating effectively, managing time appropriately and building relationships with other health care professionals on the team.
