AORN OR Protocol®

The operating room is a special environment within a health care facility, where surgical procedures are performed on patients to diagnose and treat disease or injury. Because the operating room is a highly restricted area that is subject to many laws, regulations, and professional guidelines, it is critical for health care industry representatives (HCIR) to understand how to work in and around the operating room environment. This online continuing education activity will provide you with the information you need to successfully and safely fulfill your responsibilities in the operating room, while protecting the safety and rights of patients, staff, and yourself. Following the suggestions in this program will also assist you in being accepted as an asset to patients and staff as you give technical support for your product.
