This quality improvement project addresses the lack of compliance by anesthesia providers in following aseptic techniques for preparing and administering IV medications. An initial 8-question survey was conducted to assess baseline knowledge of, and compliance with aseptic techniques by anesthesia providers. Following that, an educational intervention was performed and then a follow-up survey was conducted to assess changes in aseptic technique, knowledge, and compliance. The goal of the project was to improve knowledge and compliance of anesthesia providers following aseptic techniques. A Plan-Do-Study-Act Model was used for the organization and study of the overall results of this project.
