FUSE Hospital Compliance Modules for Download
The FUSE hospital compliance modules provide the best OR safety program available, designed for every member of the operating team, including technicians and nurses. These are well-designed—and timely tools—that teach OR teams the necessary knowledge to deal with smoke, fire and device-related issues, including surgical smoke toxicity and spread of infection. Its smoke and fire modules are especially pertinent in the current pandemic environment to minimize risk to your OR staff and patients.
The FUSE program has been validated and rigorously tested to increase OR safety standards. From the more than 300 surgeons who participated in a nationwide study of the FUSE program, 90 percent reported a change in practice, and a better understanding of surgical devices. More than 75 percent responded that it changed the way they were using the devices, and they would recommend the program to a colleague. With 85 percent of participants having witnessed an adverse event due to the use of surgical devices, 99 percent of those surveyed felt that the FUSE program would likely improve patient safety.
“As a perioperative nurse educator involved in teaching the safe use of energy-based devices, education is a key component in preventing harm to patients”, said Brenda Ulmer, MN, RN, CNOR. “There is a gap between what is taught in medical and nursing schools about electrosurgery safety and what practitioners need to know to avoid preventable patient injuries. Exposure to surgical smoke and aerosols is ever-present during the use of energy in the surgical environment and has the potential to adversely affect both patients and perioperative professionals. Knowledge about the danger smoke/aerosols represents is equally important in safe energy use. The FUSE program helps fill the gaps and elevates the knowledge of the entire OR team to the same level.”
