Protection and Prevention: Understanding Laser Safety in the Operating Room

Have you ever heard, “I don’t need to wear laser safety goggles, I’m wearing glasses,” or, “If the surgeon isn’t going to wear the goggles, I don’t have to, either.” While not always the best fashion statement, laser safety goggles are always the best choice for eye protection when lasers are being used during a procedure. But there’s more to laser use and safety than just eye protection, although that is very important. Joining us today to discuss all things laser is Richard Gama, Director of Laser Safety at Agiliti. Together we’ll learn how lasers are different from other types of energy-based technology, discuss the common hazards, errors, and problems associated with laser use, and we’ll discuss ways we can improve health care facility and industry compliance with laser safety. Tune in to learn more!
