This is a question for all out there:
Hi, I am wondering how other nurses chart or record the electrical equipment used during surgery (cautery, suction, scope light boxes, scd machines, patient warming devices, etc...). What are the different hospitals' policies, is each piece of equipment assigned an individual number, etc...this has come up in the hospital where I work and I was wondering what the community standard, or the standard of care is. I am filtering through AORN site and have not found specifics yet. Thanks!
