There are many articles and regulations relating to the use of surgical plume evacuators available. The key to having a successful plume evacuation program is to get "Buy in" from all parties, nurses, techs, and surgeons. Gather your evidence, everything in health care is evidence based. Then put together a plan of action, this should include a list of stakeholders, the list may be bigger than you think, but may include: Risk Management, OSHA Compliance officer, Quality Assurance, Infection Control, Environment of care officer, Employee Health, Laser Safety Officer or Radiation Safety Officer, Safety Committee, Biomed, and surgeons. Here are a couple of links to look at regarding regulatory standards http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/docs/hazard.../pdfs/hc11.pdf https://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owa...p_table=OSHACT
There are many options out there for plume evacuation to help get compliance from surgeons, the key is to give them options of "What" to use but require that they use "Something".
