Patient safety is at the cornerstone of the delivery of quality anesthesia. A historically pervasive patient safety threat related to the field of anesthesia has been the anesthesia workstation. Although anesthesia delivery improvements are based on refining physical engineering principles, they are also based on preventing human error. This DNP project uses an educational process improvement design to generate an evidence-based simulation educational activity for novice anesthesia providers to better prepare themselves for the reality of anesthesia workstation malfunction and human error.
