Description

Nearly all surgical procedures use some form of electrosurgical energy device. As with all electrosurgical energy devices, when electrosurgical cautery is not properly managed it has the risk of inadvertent burns to surgical staff and patients. Best practice is to protect the tip of the electrosurgical cautery pencil when not in use by the surgeon in order to minimize patient and staff burn injuries.1,2 A visual educational campaign was undertaken to help remind staff of the importance of this simple yet critical safety step.
