Quality improvement projects aim to address a clinical issue and subsequently improve patient care. Projects may improve or promote safe care, interpersonal care aspects, and life quality.1 The clinical issue addressed by this project was the lack of consistent, evidenced based, instructions for the resumption of breastfeeding following an anesthetic provided to mothers by anesthesia providers. This inconsistency was frustrating to patients and other health care providers within the hospital setting. The goal of this project was to bring consistency to the evidenced based recommendations for resumption of breastfeeding after outpatient anesthesia made by anesthesia providers and RNs in the Outpatient Surgery Department. A Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) Model was utilized to organize and study the overall effects of this quality improvement project.
