Provision of quality healthcare should be the ultimate goal of any health practitioner and institution. The process begins when a patient entrust their wellbeing to the practitioner. Be it a nurse, medical doctor, surgeon or pharmaceutical. One of the most important stages during surgical treatment is the perioperative stage. At this stage, the patient is prepared for treatment and most likely surgery. There are many perioperative medical practices that are used worldwide. Many of these practices have been around for many years yet their practice not evidence based (Spry, 2009). Recent researches by various health experts recommend the adoption of safer, cost effective and evidence based practices.

Some of these practices have been found to increase the risk on the patient and may lead to complications in future (Tanner, 2011). A forum conducted by various stakeholders in the medical arena sought to assess common perioperative procedures. Some of these procedures have been reviewed briefly below.

For instance, the use of nasogastric tubes was reviewed. Both the pros and cons of this practice were enumerated in the forum. The aim of this procedure is to decompress the alimentary canal before or after surgery. The practice has been around since the 1920s and it has been accepted world as a drainage procedure.
