Transcript: Upon the patient's return from the recovery room, you should: Identify the patient. Assist in the transfer from the stretcher to the bed. Never leave the unconscious patient alone at any time. Check with the nurse for any special instructions. Realize that the patient may be drowsy for several hours after return. Have an extra blanket available. Always wear gloves and follow standard precautions. Take vital signs of the patient upon arrival on the unit every 15 minutes for four readings. Check dressings for amount and type of any drainage. Check IV solution fro flow rate. Encourage the patient to breathe deeply, cough, and move in bed. Be sure all drainage tubes have been connected. Measure and record the first postoperative voiding. Inform the nurse. Record any patient complaints of discomfort or pain to the nurse. Surgical Concerns Preoperative Care Postoperative Complications and how to treat them Immediate Preoperative Care The Operative Period Patients are concerned with disfigurement and pain. Pain and loss control as they undergo anesthesia is also concerns of an patient. Most patients are concerned about what serious conditions might be found, and length and cost of recovery The biggest concern of an patient is possible death. Types of anesthesia Bath or shower patient with surgical soap Surgical prep (shaving of operative side) Special tests Medication to ensure a good night's rest, when indicated Insertion of special tubes for draining body cavities Being placed on NPO (nothing by mouth) orders after midnight Removal of the water pitcher from the bedside table and having the NPO notice posted over the bed,bedside stand,on the door, on the patient's chart, and on the Kardex 1 hour before surgery, the patient will be given medication by the nurse. The nurse will take and record vital signs,take care of valuables. You must remove polish,make up, and jewelry.You must dress the patient in a gown and cover the hair with a surgical cap. Drain the catheter and record. Make sure that the room is quiet and comfortable.Make sure the side rails are in place. Remove all equipment.Push every object out the way and complete the surgical checklist. Follow facility policy regarding visitors and evaluate/adjust the bed stretcher's height. A special surgical bed will be prepared. Everything should be removed from the top of the bedside stand expect an emesis basin, tissue wipes, tongue depressors, and equipment to check vital signs. A pencil and small pad to record the signs should also be available. Check with you team leader for any special equipment, such as oxygen, IV poles, suction, or drainage bags, that might be necessary for your patient. Be careful while carrying out your other assignments for the return of your patient from surgery. Follow facility policy regarding the location of visitors and family during surgery. They are sometimes permitted to wait in the patient's room. In most cases they are directed to a special waiting area. The Surgical Patient The Postoperative Care Period The main 3 types of anesthetics are general, local and regional. General produces loss of consciousness including an absence of pain sensation Local numbs one small area of the body.You stay awake and alert. Regional blocks pain in an area of the body, such as an arm or leg. By: Destiny Morrison and Miracle White 2nd Block Some postoperative complications may include: Shock which is a severe drop in blood pressure that causes a dangerous reduction of blood flow throughout the body. Hemorrhage which is rapid blood loss from the site of surgery. Wound infection which is when bacteria enters the site of surgery. Infections can delay the healing. Shock may be treated by stopping any blood loss, helping with breathing and reducing heat loss. Hemorrhage may be treated by IV fluids or blood plasma, a blood transfusion, or more surgery to control the bleeding. Wound Infections may be treated by antibiotics and surgery or procedure to clean or drain the infected area.
Transcript: The Road Ahead for a Surgical MSOP Patient https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0veDFGo666s Introduction The Case -An older male patient was admitted to the OR for a Cystoscopy due to a diagnosis of a urethral stricture blockage. Diagnosis: Bulb Urethral Stricture Surgical Treatment: Cystoscopy with Urethral Dilation Pre-Operative: NPO after Midnight Labs: Hgb and K+ Diagnostics: KUB X-ray and EKG Surgery: given Ancef 1gram IVPB and had General Anesthesia Post-Operative: PACU SCDs applied Diet as Tolerated Administer Pain Medications: Acetaminophen and Hydrocodone The Patient What is MSOP? Minnesota Sex Offender Program The Patient Prior To Surgery: -Has a self catherization regimen -Was admitted to the ED prior for complete stricture blockage -Former Smoker Medical Conditions: -Obesity, HTN, BPH, TBI, Venous Stasis, and Dermatitis Medications: -Tamsulosin--> used to relieve urinary retention for BPH -Capsaicin--> chili pepper extract used for Chronic Pain -Surgilube Lubricant gel--> a surgical lubricant made of natural water-soluble gums that also contains the antiseptic chlorhexidine gluconate for catherization for urethral stricture disease Psychologically: -Cognitive Distortions -Depression Urinary Retention r/t urethral stricture blockage and BPH AEB difficulty urinating and decreased urinary output Priority Nursing Diagnosis Nursing Diagnosis Nursing Interventions: - Perform a focused physical assessment including perineal skin integrity and inspection, percussion, and palpation of the lower abdomen, looking for obvious bladder distention or an enlarged kidney - Monitor for signs of dehydration, peripheral edema, elevating blood pressure, and heart failure -Teach patient how to self-catherize themselves steriley What is a Urethral Stricture Blockage? It is the narrowing of the urethra due to scarring A stricture blockage can cause problems with the urinary tract such as inflammation and infection Assessment Physical Exam: Focused assessments of the perineum and abdomen Signs and Symptoms -Decreased Urine Stream -Incomplete bladder empyting -Having difficulty or pain while urinating -Increased Urge or Frequency of Urination What to Assess for: -STDs or STIs (most often chlamydia) -Cancer of the Urethra or Prostate -Trauma or Injury -Intermittent or long-term use of a tube inserted through the urethra to drain the bladder (catheter) Assessment Assessment Labs & Diagnostics Labs Urinalysis: looks for signs of infection, blood, or cancer in the urine Diagnostics -Urine Flow Test: detects a abnormal stream over time -Retrograde Urethrogram: uses X-ray images to check for a structural problem or injury of the urethra as well as the length and location of the stricture along the urethra -Urethral Ultrasound: evaluates the length of the stricture -Cystoscopy: examines your urethra and bladder using a thin, tube like device fitted with a lens (cystoscope) to view these organs) Urethral Dilation: enlarging the stricture with gradual stretching Urethrotomy: cutting the stricture with a laser or knife through a scope Open Surgery: surgical removal of the stricture with reconnection and reconstruction *There are no medications to cure strictures Treatment Options Treatment Risk Factors -Sexually transmitted infection (STI) -Procedures that place a tube into the urethra (such as a catheter or cystoscope) -Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) -Injury to the pelvic area -Repeated urethritis Risk Factors -Hydronephrosis -Renal Failure -Prostatitis -Rupture of the bladder from surgery Potential Complications Actual -Complete Stricture Blockage -Urinary Retention Nursing Interventions Interventions Collaborative Interventions -Have the patient sign the consent form -Get a baseline set of vital signs upon arrival to the OR -Prep the patient (shaving and chlorhexidine wipes) -Use sterile technique when applying the skin prep in the OR -Administer Pain Medications as ordered -Discharge Teaching -Urologist: identifies the problem (urethral stricture disease) -Surgeon: goes over the risk vs benefits of the cystoscopy -Nurse-Anesthetist: maintains airways and vitals through the procedure -Surgical Technician: maintains sterile technique throughout the procedure to help assist the doctor Patient Teaching Patient Teaching -Treatment Options & Risks of each option -Pre-Operative Preparations: *Take antibiotics as directed *Empty bladder before procedure *Consent Form -Post-Operative Complications: *Signs of Infection *Bleeding *Abdominal pain *Burning Sensation upon Urinating -Wound dressing changes -Self-Catherization Primary Prevention: - Avoid injury to the urethra and pelvis - Be careful with self-catheterization Use lubricating jelly liberally Use the smallest possible catheter needed for the shortest time -Avoid sexually transmitted infections Secondary Prevention: -Screen For STDs and STIs -Early Treatment before the stricture becomes enlarged and blocks flow completely Tertiary Prevention: -Cystoscopy with dilation (possibly

Transcript: Patient Portal Utilization Meaningful use is using certified electronic health record (EHR) technology to: Improve quality, safety, efficiency, and reduce health disparities Engage patients and family Improve care coordination, and population and public health Maintain privacy and security of patient health information Meaningful use sets specific objectives that eligible professionals (EPs) and hospitals must achieve to qualify for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs. Two metrics: Patient Electronic Access 1: 50% target Measure 1: More than 50 percent of all unique patients seen by the EP during the EHR reporting period are provided timely access to view online, download, and transmit to a third party their health information subject to the EP's discretion to withhold certain information. Patient Electronic Access 2: 5% target For an EHR reporting period in 2017, more than 5 percent of unique patients seen by the EP during the EHR reporting period (or his or her authorized representatives) view, download or transmit to a third party their health information during the EHR reporting period. “When patients interact with their test results, they need to know the purpose of the test, the interpretation of the result, and next steps. Addressing these issues may help improve patient-centered care” (Baldwin, Singh, Sittig, & Giardina, 2016). References 2016 Program Requirements.

The authors found that “virtual medication reconciliation following hospital discharge has the potential to improve medication safety in the transition from inpatient to outpatient care” “more effort on the part of the provider is needed to encourage patients to use a portal system. If providers take a more active role in educating patients as to the benefit of the portal, provide a positive view of the system, provide consistent standardized information, and remind the patients in multiple ways and times, patients are more likely to enroll in the portal system” (Snyder & Oliver, 2014).

Transcript: Receiving a patient after surgery By Ryan Cavallo Notification of Admission and Report Prep Steps to consider before taking report: Step 1: Your Charge RN notifies you that you are getting a post surgical patient. Step 2: Take time to independently look up your patient in Epic. Step 3: Review recent vital signs, pain scores, and Neuro assessments. Step 4: Ask yourself if this patient seem's appropriate for a General Care floor? Continue on to taking Nurse to Nurse Report. Yes they seem floor appropriate No, they might need a higher level of care. Examples of conditions that might require a higher level of care: Uncontrolled pain Unstable Vital Signs Need for cardiac monitoring New Neurological changes on assessment *Please bring concerns to your charge nurse and surgical team before taking report as this patient may need to be bedded elsewhere. Nurse to Nurse Report Once the patient is deemed floor appropriate, it's time to take report! Nursing should use the Situation, Background, Assessment, and Recommendation model when giving and receiving report. Studies show that utilizing the SBAR model correctly increases nursing quality and favirable patient outcomes (Abbaszade et al., 2020) Please follow up with your Charge RN if any additional concerns are made apparent after recieving report. SBAR Template When SBAR is not used Appropriately Using the SBAR Model appropriately decreases the risk that this situation will happen. It is expected that nursing provides a thorough and accurate report. Report Methods and Expectations Nurse to Nurse report can be given in many different ways: PACU RN calls report to floor RN PACU RN calls report to floor Charge RN PACU RN brings patient to unit for bedside report When thinking of how you want to give and take report, developing a process that limits room for errors is essential. Current data suggests that bedside report increases patient safety and helps eliminate excess time in the assessment process (Gates et al., 2021). If bedside report is not feasible, please leave a call back number or direct message name for additional questions. Why Effective Report is Important Effective Nurse to Nurse report is utilized as a safety tool when transferring a patient. Nurse to Nurse report allows both parties to ask questions and vocalize concerns. Effective report has been linked to decreased medication errors, delays in care, and even patient death. Please speak with your unit's Nursing Education Specialist with any additional questions.

Transcript: Universal Protocol Time Out Procedure Verification Areas Universal Protocol performed in Two Patient Identifiers Used Patient Safety The time out is done in the operating room. The circulating nurse in the operating room stops everything before the procedure even begins to identify that the right patient is in the operating room, and verifies the procedure and site of the surgery. Became mandatory by the Joint Commission in 2004, yet many wrong site surgeries are still performed. It is designed to ensure correct patient, correct site and correct procedure and prevent wrong site surgeries. The three components: pre op verification process, marking of the site, time out in OR The two patient identifiers used today are name and birth date. If two patients have similar names, they don't have the same birth date. The Joint commission implementing the Universal Protocol was seeing into the future and with the intention to prevent wrong site wrong patient procedures. Making our operating rooms a safer place for patients. The implementations for health care are less law suits, less patient deaths and increased patient safety. In the past before 2004 when universal protocol was not mandatory in every facility time outs were done in the pre operative areas only Limitations Wrong Site Surgeries Not 100% accurate, Robotic ritual distracts from protocol, Inadequate or incorrect marking of site, time out should not take responsibility that right procedure is performed, expand time out to include antibiotic and DVT prophylaxis, with multiple procedures should have time out before each, not being done, not always strict adherence to protocol Surgical Patient Safety Universal Protocol Thank you! In one state between 2004-2006 there were 427 wrong site surgeries even after the implementation of the Time Outs. Wrong site surgeries occur approximately 1,300-2700 times annually in the United States alone.
