    We do procedures 3xweek. We have a different team each day on a rotating schedule so everyone can stay credentialed. There are dedicated procedure RN’s that check the H&P’s, roadmaps, orders and consent for each procedure prior to the patient going into the procedure room and then it is all checked again during the time out process with the entire team. We also have a tracking tool for all samples sent for each procedure.

    Does your institution have one provider do all the procedures each day?
    If so, how do others stay credentialed for Joint Commission?
    How do you manage the continuity, H&P, roadmaps, sending correct samples/labs, if your patient has someone else doing the procedures?
