Loaner, Loaner, Where Are You?

In today’s sterile processing environment, we are faced with many challenges ­ one specifically that often comes up is the challenge of managing loaner trays.

Issues include: tight scheduling, processing massive numbers of trays, meeting surgeon’s preference, and recognizing the needs of the patient. Staff are pressured to process a variety of loaner trays, some unfamiliar and complex, often with little time to properly process. Surgeons utilize only what they need. Yet, reps bring in an excessive number of loaners and duplicate trays, not sure of what the surgeon truly needs, and more in case there is a tear in the wrapper.

What if there was a way to reduce inventory, go paper­less, improve accuracy, ensure policies are followed and reduce time locating these sets?
