My PICC team routinely covers our procedure table with a sterile drape while waiting for the patient to arrive in the procedure room (work in a pediatric facility). We set up the table, cover it with sterile drape, and bring in the pt to set up the arm on the board and sedate them if needed. We then uncover the table and perform the procedure. We again cover the table with a sterile drape while getting xray confirmation (site is covered with sterile towel for xray). We then uncover table and dress the picc. So.....an OR employee has brought it to my attention that it is against standard practice to cover table and sterile supplies with sterile drape. Has anyone heard of this practice? What do you do in your facility? Are there a set of OR standards (like our INS standards) that addresses this? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
