Accreditation

Universal Protocol in 2009

Accreditation Connection, October 24, 2008

Q. Why is The Joint Commission now saying that, beginning in 2009, surgical timeouts should ideally be done before anesthesia is given? Does this mean we don’t position the patient for a timeout anymore? We certainly wouldn’t position the patient before he or she is put to sleep.This change has me a little perplexed.
