Product Description

Product Description

Operating rooms and surgical suites are the sites of modern-day miracles. Yet we all know that in the complex and dynamic environment of the OR, with its constant change and time pressures, opportunities for errors abound with high-tech equipment, potentially lethal drugs, evolving pathogens, and situational and environmental factors.  That’s why surgical settings need to be continuously and consistently providing the best, safest, and highest quality care possible.  Joint Commission accreditation is key to the provision of safe patient care.
