"AORN has been providing recommended practices and standards of practice since 1978. This 2011 version includes all of the current standards recommended and provides the revisions for the four specific areas of perioperative practice. These standards are under continuous scrutiny by the AORN Recommended Practices Committee and it is essential for those who practice in this area to have the latest recommendations."
