Coryell Renews Commitment on National Time Out Day June 12, 2019

Gatesville, Coryell
Coryell Renews Commitment on National Time Out Day, Gatesville, Texas

On National Time Out Day, hospitals around the country are reminded to evaluate the quality of their operating rooms’ time out process. Time Out Day was established 15 years ago by the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) to support the protocol and build greater awareness for this crucial safety measure among surgical team members.

Surgical teams take a “time out” before operative and other invasive procedures so that surgical team members can confirm the correct patient is in the room and the team is prepared for the right procedure. Coryell’s surgical team, led by Carah Pelebo , RN; and Dr. Stephen Norris, MD, general surgeon, preformed a demonstration to show how Time Out works.  Watch our video.

“Coryell Health is committed to safe surgery and our pledge to provide each surgical patient a focused time out, with the full and undivided attention of our entire surgical team,” adds Connie Allen, RN, Director of Surgical Services.
