Sterile Supplies in OR?

  1. 0
    Does anyone know what AORN's policy is for keeping sterile supplies in the OR? Sometimes we keep a bin (about 12' from the surgical field) with supplies we might need for the case. It seems that they would like us to keep nothing in the room but instead run in and out of the room repeatedly for anything we need. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    They should be kept in an enclosed compartment (i.e. closed cabinet, closed case cart, Pyxis) etc.

    All of ours are in an enclosed cabinet. The supplies that come on are case carts are in a bin that open and close.
