CALLOWAY COUNTY, KY (6/13/12) – Pictured are Staff in the Outpatient Surgery department at Murray-Calloway County Hospital after signing a “Time Out” pledge as part of National Time Out Day on June 13.
The campaign aims to promote the Time Out, which is a period of time before surgery when members of the perioperative team make sure everything is ready and correct before beginning the operation. This helps guard against wrong site, wrong procedure and wrong person surgery and is endorsed by the Joint Commission, the World Health Organization and the Council on Surgery and Perioperative Safety.
