This handbook is the first of its kind to discuss infection control guidelines that directly relate to surgical environments. It is particularly useful to nurses who need to meet OSHA and JCAHO requirements for practice in perioperative, PACU, ambulatory, and endoscopy settings. Procedure guidelines are concisely described and followed by rationales referenced to AORN standards, CDC guidelines, and other resources.
