17 Oct Technology & the OR
Surgery continues to break boundaries in the OR, we have bionic implants, surgical instruments customised to the various surgical approaches, devices to control bleeding, complete intra-operative patient monitoring.
Hmmm what about the OR setup, preparation & equipment? Getting the right equipment at the right time is instrumental in optimising patient safety, enhancing efficiency & reducing costs.
The role of the peri-operative team should be highlighted and supported. We have a significant role in maintaining the efficiency of a unit.
Patient safety plays a key role in everything we do. The longer the surgery the increased chance of an infection, DVT & an adverse outcome for our patients.
As a hospital run business this equates to a loss of revenue, longer hospital stays, increased use of resources, reduced number of available beds, increased use of high-end medical & pharmaceutical supplies.
This is why ScrubUp Software needs to be part of all operating room suites.
