Just trying to get some input from you guys. What is your current Surgical Attire policy? Our hospital is beginning to implement a lot of the newer AORN recommendations and is meeting a lot of resistance. i.e. no surgeons caps, wear jackets, etc
Also, if you follow the "all non scrubbed personnel wear a jacket" in the OR portion of the recommendation, how do you handle scrubs
, surgeons, etc.. once they have broken scrub? Do they have to keep a jacket in the OR to wear once they take off their gowns?
And how are you supposed to wash your hands if they get soiled? Dispose of jacket, wash
hands, then get a new jacket? I have TONS of questions!
Thanks for the help!
