Urgent ICU to OR Handoff Improvement
Project Description: The urgent transfers from the ICU are some of the sickest patients that arrive to the OR; the handoffs from the ICU staff to the OR staff are some of the least organized and hurried transfers that occur. 80% of serious medical errors involve miscommunication during handoffs between medical providers; we see this ICU transfer process as a way to improve patient safety and improve safe transfer to timely, life-saving surgery.
