App Store Description

'Time-Out' is an interactive mobile simulation that guides you on the 'Best Practice' to prevent wrong-site invasive procedures, required by The Joint Commission Universal and VHA Policy.

Wrong-site procedures have potentially disastrous consequences for patients, staff and healthcare organizations. Patients suffer preventable harm, staff may be censured and emotionally traumatized, and healthcare organizations experience a loss of reputation and the public’s trust.

The Universal Protocol includes the pre-procedure verification of the patient identification and procedure to be performed; confirmation of proper informed consent; marking of the site; and performance of a time-out.

Time-outs are critical to ensuring correct procedures:
- All team members are expected to halt other tasks and participate.
- The time-out occurs just prior to initiating the procedure and after the patient is prepped and draped.
- A checklist guides the discussion.
- Patient identification, procedure and site are confirmed, proper informed consent is verified, the site mark is visualized within the sterile field, and medical images are reviewed.
- The facilitation of an effective time out requires leadership, teamwork and communication skills.

This simulation lets you use and practice the above methodology to master an effective Time-out protocol. It uses the situation of a Thoracentesis procedure to guide you.
