Follow Correct Prep-for-Surgery Order Process

When using the prep-for-surgery workflow, it is important that you follow the correct process. Incorrectly placed PAT orders, like not using a Pre-op Order Set or orders added as an “additional order,” do not properly flow to the PAT nurse to complete.

To make sure you are up to speed on the correct process and prevent order delays, review the Prep for Surgery tip sheet. It also highlights important steps you may be missing.
