Quality Improvement Project



Quality Cluster Leaders - Anesthesiology
  • Dr. Philip Kalarickal


 A doctor performs surgery in the Department of Urology.

The Department of Anesthesiology is establishing a quality improvement project to evaluate the impact of changes in the perioperative process on 'day of operation' efficiency by measuring the amount of 'day of surgery' lab work and the number of 'day of surgery' cancellations.  This project will be a joint effort by the staff, residents, and CRNAs in the department of anesthesiology as well as the nursing staff in OPS and the PACU.
