Surgery is an important means of treating diseases. Preparation before surgery is very important for patients, including carefully checking the patient. In order to prevent receiving the wrong patient, entering the wrong operating room, and opening the wrong surgical site, it is necessary to effectively ensure that the operation is successful. Proceed safely and smoothly. In terms of identity recognition, traditional identification methods use verbal verification by the patient and bedside information verification. However, this identification method is relatively risky for patients who are about to undergo surgery, because the patient before surgery may be under anesthesia. The patient's consciousness may not be clear, the patient may be comatose, have a speech impediment, etc., and the patient's information cannot be correctly verified. Moreover, once the patient leaves the bed, the patient's identity cannot be verified through the information at the bedside.

With the development of medical technology, most hospitals also use identification wristbands as a tool to identify patients. When they are hospitalized, the nursing staff helps the patients wear the wristbands and carefully checks them. For patients undergoing surgery, before the surgery, the responsible nurse brings the surgery notice to the ward to check the medical records, check the patient's wristband information, introduce the operating room environment and surgical cooperation to the patient, and understand the patient's basic ward information. On the day of the operation, the responsible nurse fills in and checks the patient information on the operation sheet according to the operation time, including department, name, age, gender, hospital number, operation name, operation time, etc., and carries the checklist with the ward nurse to check the operation patient's, After confirming that the medical records, identification wristbands, and surgical site identification are correct, the patient will be transferred to the designated operating room. The roving nurse will check the above information against the patient's medical records, X-rays, items, etc. and the wristbands, and then sign if they are completely consistent. and inform the doctor.

It maximizes management efficiency and allows Nursing work should be detailed, clear and labeled.
