Outpatient Surgery magazine has named Dosher Memorial Hospital an OR Excellence Award recipient for 2017 for implementing a program to eradicate surgical smoke from the operating rooms at the hospital.
Dosher is one of seven hospitals in the U.S. to earn this recognition for various aspects of operating room services, and it comes in the staff safety category.
“Removal of surgical smoke is a good thing for our patients, employees and staff physicians,” said Kim York, director of Dosher Surgical Services.
York developed the program to eradicate the smoke via cautery pencils that suction smoke from incisions into a filtering device.
