Perioperative Nursing is at its Breaking Point. How Can we Fix it?

Decades before COVID-19, hospitals were struggling with how to effectively meet and manage standards of patient care. While the current pandemic has clearly introduced new burdens on nurses and nurse management, in many ways, the pandemic has severely amplified old issues and combined them with a new generation of challenges. Historically, nursing has been incredibly resilient; so much so that hospital leadership has unfairly relied upon nurses to weather any storm. Are we finally at the breaking point? If so, what can be done to move us in the right direction?

In this webinar, we hear from perioperative executives from leading U.S. health systems as they touch on many topics, including how the implementation of technology can assist in relieving the burden on the nursing staff while empowering them with more transparent, accurate, and mobile patient data:
