This book and CD-ROM set will show you how to prevent OR fires. It will also guide you in your quest to develop policies and procedures that ensure the safety of patients and staff.
Studies show that there are 100 fires reported annually in the OR environment. What makes this statistic frightening is that these involve fires on or near patients or staff members. Couple this with the fire training requirements from a cast of regulators including OSHA, the NFPA, CMS, and the JCAHO, and you've got a job to do.
