2023 Together - P460 - QR Equals Quick Response to Simplify OR Equipment Setup - On Demand
Quick response (QR) code technology is already used in various industries, but its use in the operating room (OR) is an innovative concept. A typical OR can include more than 100 different pieces of equipment, posing a challenge for OR nurses who must be competent in their use. A QR code-enabled education tool can make it easier for nurses to navigate this complex environment, support proficiency and reinforce skills, and promote quality care in the OR.
