Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Margaret A Holder, PhD (University of North Florida Brooks College of Health)
Description: This book sets out the approved standards, recommended practices, guidelines, and guidance statements for the practice of perioperative nursing from the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN). It is an updated version of items published electronically in 2010. There are four major practice revisions for this edition: surgical attire, laser safety, product selection and prevention of retained surgical items.
Purpose: This edition assists readers in complying with regulatory mandates and meeting accreditation requirements, particularly related to staff competency assessments. The standards as outlined and discussed in this book are the evidence-based foundation for safe, effective perioperative care. The standards provide the framework for nurses practicing in this area and serve as the basis for quality monitoring and evaluation of patient outcomes. AORN is the leader in this area.
Audience: Written especially for nurses engaged in perioperative practice in all clinical settings, the book is also useful for anyone responsible for oversight, including administrators of perioperative centers or practice areas. The members of the Recommended Practices Committee and Perioperative Nursing Specialists who reviewed and developed these standards are all experts in this area.
Features: This concise reference provides definitions of scope of practice and recommended practices. The recommended practices section is very specific and includes information on aseptic practice, equipment and product safety, patient care, and sterilization and disinfection. It gives clear concise direction to promote optimal patient care. It also has a comprehensive section with a wide collection of sample policy and procedure documents, customizable to an individual facility to assist in compliance with accreditation standards. It would have been helpful to include the CD-ROM that is available for purchase separately with this book.
Assessment: AORN has been providing recommended practices and standards of practice since 1978. This 2011 print version includes all of the current standards recommended and provides the revisions for the four specific areas of perioperative practice. These standards are under continuous scrutiny by the AORN Recommended Practices Committee and it is essential for those who practice in this area to have the latest recommendations.
