How to survey doctors about OR nurse performance

  1. 0
    Hello! I am a nursing student and have been given the task of developing a quick survey tool to give to doctors after a surgical case is complete to evaluate the RNs performance before, during, and after the procedure. Does anyone have a tool they are currently using that works well? Do you have a suggestion as to where to look for such an evaluation tool? I have been searching some but figure there's no reason to reinvent the wheel if someone has something that is working well. Thank you so much!!

    Your professor has probably given you this assignment to force you to think critically about qualities that would make a good nurse vs. one that doesn't work well as part of a team. It is not "reinventing the wheel" to ask you to be creative, give this topic some serious consideration, and do your own homework.

    Since this wasn't an assignment for school I thought I would post here. I'm sorry if you felt like I wasn't doing my own homework. I am a volunteer in the OR and they recently had a meeting about finding a simple way to get constructive feedback from the OR doctors regarding the performance of additional staff during each case. I was hoping that someone might have found or created a tool that they had found useful already. I'm sorry if it sounded like I wasn't doing my own work, that wasn't the intention at all.

    We have a surgical debriefing at the end of every case. We discuss any problems we encountered during the case (i.e. communication, not having equipment or supplies available that were not anticipated at the beginning, etc.) I work in a county hospital run by residents, so everything is made into a learning experience. We don't use a tool, everybody just chimes in, even the medical students, if they think there could be an improvement in something.

    I love the idea of a "surgical debriefing"! I've honestly never heard of such. I work in a teaching hospital and think this would be a valuable tool. Although I'm not sure how much time it would consume.

    It's done during closing, and if it gets silly, which it does all the time, I cut it short.

    Here is a website for you and a good questionnaire to base your survey on.
