Transferring children to and from theatre. RCN position statement and guidance for good practice – Royal College of Nursing – 21 July 2011
ISBN: 978-1-906633-77-6

“Abstract:
Undergoing surgery can be a very stressful time for a child and their family. It is well recognised that family involvement reduces anxiety, for example, a family member accompanying the child to the anaesthetic room and being in the recovery area when the child wakes up. The results of a study by the RCN Children’s Surgical Nursing Forum highlighted an absence of standards for the transfer of children to and from the operating theatre. This publication aims to support health care staff to develop locally agreed guidelines for the assessment and management of children and young people being transferred between hospital departments, ensuring they are safely transferred to and from theatre.”
