Safe Surgery Used by Nurses: Homology the World Health Organization
Objective: Investigate whether the Surgical Safety Checklist - LVCS, used by nurses in the Surgical Center is correlated with what is recommended by the World Health Organization.
Method: Descriptive exploratory study of quantitative-qualitative approach with 10 nurses, using questionnaire and form. CEP/HULW, CAAE: 55252216.0.0000.5183.
Results: LVCS meets patient needs, but is not being used properly due to difficulties during its application. It was highlighted the importance of training and training about this protocol.
Discussion: The LVCS is the responsibility of the team, requiring multiprofessional work during its application to avoid errors. Thus, continuing education is the tool for the implementation of training.
Conclusion: The LVCS is in line with what the WHO recommends, however, nurses record in the medical record the information of the actions that they develop, but affirm that the responsibility of the registry is of all the professionals and that the nursing, medical and anesthetic team, in spite of developing their actions, does not intend to contribute in the aspects related to the items contained in the LVCS that correspond to their activities, causing a loss in obtaining reliable data.
