HiPP: facilitating teamwork in the OR More concentrated and more focused working thanks to color (codes)
Teamwork during operations is vitally important. Teamwork can always be improved, for example by ‘giving’ color to specific operation phases. Is the surgeon about to start a new phase in the operation? Then he uses a foot switch to change the color of the pastel LED light under the instrument panel as a signal for his colleagues.
