New Universal Protocol Policy and Education Regarding Correct Patient, Procedure and Site

Sibley has instituted a new universal protocol, Policy 01-08-04: Correct Patient, Procedure and Site, that went into effect on June 23. Click here to read the policy, which describes the process to verify that each procedure, whether surgical or non-surgical, is performed on the correct patient, is the planned procedure and is done at the correct anatomical side and site. The policy includes procedures involving moderate sedation or anesthesia, regardless of geographical location (e.g., procedural area, operating room, bedside). The policy applies unless specific Joint Commission exception criteria apply, as defined in Section II, B of the policy.

All staff involved in invasive procedures, regardless of geographical location, are required to complete education on the policy in MyLearning by Monday, July 31. Please log into MyLearning (available in my.jh.edu) to complete the course.

Feeling Stressed? Try Mindfulness Meditation Sessions at Sibley and Grand Oaks!

Sibley is offering mindfulness meditation sessions three times per week. Employees, community members, and patients and their families are welcome. First time and experienced meditators are welcome.

Mindfulness meditation, according to Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph.D., an internationally known expert in mindfulness, encourages individuals to “pay attention, on purpose, non-judgmentally, in the present moment, as if your life depended on it.” The practice can lead to increased calmness and clarity and reduced stress. It can even help individuals to meet the challenges of illness more skillfully and with more ease.

Sessions take place every week on:

  • Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to noon at Sibley
  • Wednesdays from 4 to 5 p.m. at Grand Oaks
  • Thursdays from 1 to 2 p.m. at Sibley

Registration is required. To register and get more information, please call x7602.
