Goof-prone cartoon entertains and instructs

OSHA Healthcare Connection, June 16, 2009

When you see a scrub team member wearing Crocs with ventilation holes standing in a puddle of operating room fluid, don’t get riled, it’s only a cartoon.

That was one of the purposely drawn mistakes in last year’s "What's Wrong with this Picture," by the Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN.)

Each year AORN creates a cartoon that demonstrates breaks in recommended perioperative technique. But you don’t need to work in the perioperative setting to identify the safety, infection control, and work practice goofs while at the same time having a bit of fun.

Read “Just for laughs, what's wrong with this picture?” featured in today’s OSHA Healthcare Advisor.
