Policies for the Use of Personal Mobile Devices in Surgical Suites

Human factors studies indicate that distractions and multitasking increase the likelihood of error (Feil, 2013; Wiegmann, ElBardissi, Dearani, Daly, & Sundt, 2007). Allowing personnel to bring their cell phones, smartphones, or other mobile devices into a surgical suite introduces a new distraction into an already complex, noisy, high-stakes environment. Rather than assume that perioperative personnel will always use their best judgment, health systems should adopt formal, written policies, procedures, or guidelines for the use of personal devices in order to provide:

  • Clarity regarding specific performance expectations
  • A basis for enforcement, if instances of noncompliance are reported
  • A clear message that patient safety is the highest priority at all times
