  1. Safety First: Empowering Perioperative Team Members to Speak Up

    Although organization leaders may expect health care professionals to speak up about patient safety concerns to avoid or correct mistakes that can result in patient harm, perioperative leaders may overlook encouraging nurses to employ this type of communication. The act of speaking up is not automatic; it will occur when there is intentional support from nursing leaders and medical staff members to remove barriers and enhance trust, which is critical for success with speaking up and stopping the line for safety. All perioperative nurses should speak up for patient safety and report deviations that may lead to harm.
