It’ll All Come Out in the Wash: Decontaminating the Relationship Between OR and SPD

There’s generally a transactional relationship between the OR and SPD. The SPD gives, and the OR takes. And that relationship is usually hindered with break downs in communication and a lack of respect – from both sides of the autoclave. We’re discussing ways to improve that relationship today with Brian Dolan, MHSA, CMRP, CRCST, CHVAP, LSSGB, VP of Resource Management at Bayhealth Medical Center in Dover, DE. Tune in as Brian discusses the different challenges that OR staff and SPD staff face, the ways our systems promote poor communication, and the importance of empathy, respect, and good relationships.
