As surgeries begin to resume across the country, many organizations face new post COVID-19 challenges such as minimizing the number of staff in the surgical suite and post-anesthesia care units (PACUs) to mitigate patient risk. Healthcare organizations are also working to keep their largest revenue center functioning at peak performance, especially as hospitals face a mounting backlog of elective procedures.
To assure a safe and thoughtful approach to surgical reactivation, surgeons, anesthesia providers, and perioperative leaders must be assembled and mobilized. With the right perioperative leaders in place at the right time, organizations can gain critical insight on compliance, social distancing, PPE, effective re-stocking of operating rooms and PACUs, enhanced cleaning protocols, resources to assure complete patient advocacy, changes to visitation and discharge, and other essential elements of operating a safe and efficient perioperative department.
