Here are three key nursing tips to know:

1. Ask staff what they need. Checking in with ASC nurses on what they want to learn about in the in-service can help fill knowledge gaps.

2. Start early. Encouraging staff to review patient charts and check in with other staffers before their shifts begin can prepare them for managing tasks and assessing the time they need to spend on them.

3. Reinforce protocol. Nursing leaders can eliminate confusion about hand hygiene protocol by educating other nurses about the World Health Oragnization's five moments for hand hygiene, suggests the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses.
