Mind the Gap: Recruiting International Nurses to
Aid the American Nursing Shortage
A national nursing shortage could not have hit the United States (US) at
a worse time. Registered Nurse (RN) shortages have been predicted for
a long time with little or no action plan. The nursing shortage is due to
several factors. However, two key factors come to mind: RN attrition and
the absence of a national strategic plan to educate the next generation
of registered nurses. Another key factor contributing to the nursing
shortage is the national explosion of new joint venture healthcare and
outpatient surgery centers to help surgeons bridge the financial gap
created by decreasing healthcare reimbursements. Add to the fact that a
worldwide Covid epidemic has nurses being offered lucrative short-term
nursing jobs with an insane amount of money, travel, and rewards.
HonorHealth Thompson Peak and Sonoran Crossing Medical Centers
have put a dent in the void within the operating room is to partner with
an international RN job placement company which prepares an aspiring
RN from abroad to be successful in the US.
The international nurse arrives in the US having already successfully
passed the National Council Licensing Examination (NCLEX). In addition
to passing the NCLEX, the national job placement company reviews and
educates the international nurse on the Association of perioperative
Registered Nurses (AORN) standards and recommended practices in caring
for the surgical patient in the operating room.
After hiring an international nurse, HonorHealth orients and educates
the nurse to help familiarize the RN with policies and procedures specific
to its network. HonorHealth has found that many, if not all, international
nurses are unfamiliar with the high-touch, highly technological
equipment and instrumentation. At HonorHealth, we have spent a good
amount of time training the international nurses in technology along
with nursing practices to help fill the void during the current nursing
shortage.
Learning Objectives:
» Describe the onboarding process for international nurses.
» Describe ways to effectively educate the policies and procedures at your
facility.
» Describe how the international nurse can commit to the best patient
care and outcomes.

Importance of Environmental Conditions During the
Transport and Storage of Soiled Medical Devices
Point-of-Use treatment is a hot topic. It is such an important part of
infection prevention that accreditation surveyors are observing this step
after surgical procedures. The central part of point-of-use treatment is
to moisten and remove gross soil at the location of use to help prevent
organic material and debris from drying on instruments. Dried soil on
surgical instrument surfaces can affect the efficacy of subsequent
cleaning, disinfection and sterilization processes, and promotes the
formation of a dry biofilm. These biofilms are difficult to remove and
are more resistant to inactivation by steam sterilization than a hydrated
biofilm. The time and transport method from the point-of-use treatment
until the thorough cleaning process begins differs from each facility.
In 2021, research was conducted on the solubility of dried soil on reusable
medical devices. This groundbreaking research supports the scientific
justification for point-of-use treatment and provides guidance for
environmental conditions and time constraints when transporting soiled
surgical instrumentation. This presentation will show the results of the
research project, with data demonstrating the change in solubility of
dried soil on reusable medical devices when exposed to various time,
temperature, and humidity ranges. These conditions mimic what the
device may experience as it is transported from point of use and waiting
for decontamination.
Learning Objectives:
» Discuss point-of-use treatment on surgical instrumentation.
» Discuss the research project demonstrating the change in solubility of
dried soil on reusable medical devices.
» Assess the change in solubility of dried soil on reusable medical devices
when exposed to various time, temperature, and humidity ranges.

Infection Prevention Surveillance and Data
Collection in the ASC, Part II
The ambulatory surgery infection preventionist (IP) performs vital
surveillance and data collection. It is important for the IP to conduct
regular audits of infection prevention area such as hand hygiene, safe
injection practices, and cleaning and disinfection. If a post-operative
surgical site infection is identified, the IP must develop a plan to
complete a thorough investigation and use data to identify trends. This
presentation will describe how to prioritize the infection prevention
surveillance focus areas in the ambulatory surgery center (ASC). This
will include a review of sample audit tools and a surgical site infection
investigation form. It will conclude with communication of surveillance
findings to healthcare workers, regulatory agencies, and the governing
body of the ASC.
Learning Objectives:
» Develop audit procedures for infection prevention strategies in the ASC.
» Describe the critical components of post-operative surgical site
infection investigations.
» Analyze infection prevention audit data.
