How Do Custom Procedure Trays Decrease Wastage?

Custom Procedure Trays Cut Costs

Custom procedure trays are critical to any medical procedure performed in any type of medical setting such as,

  • Emergency Rooms
  • Operating Rooms
  • Floors with patients
  • All types of medical clinics
  • Dental offices and more

Old Methods a Thing of the Past

As a medical professional you can gather all your needed supplies before the procedure, but this takes an enormous amount of time and energy. Not all medical tools are disposable, so after the procedure, it takes time and money to adequately clean and sterilize these instruments and have them ready for the next procedure.

Gathering supplies is no big deal. However, this approach becomes a problem if you need certain medical tools in an emergency situation and time is of the essence. When medical staff is in a hurry to gather needed equipment, there is bound to be a lot of waste in the way of time and money.

Many times you as part of the medical team may pull too many tools for a procedure and had to throw them away or send unused equipment for sterilization. This method proved to miss essential tools.

At one time tools and equipment used in procedures were not sent out to companies. Facilities had to pay staff to sterilize custom procedure trays and repackage them for the next day. Medical services do not want to pay staff to do this job.

Changing Methods Due to Wasteful Spending

Saving time, money, and increasing efficiency with procedures are the reasons why the medical community turned to custom procedure trays. Having all the medical necessities and equipment on one tray saves a lot of time.

At the end of a busy day, a contracted company picks up used custom procedure trays and takes them for repackaging, delivering them back to the facility.

Save Time and Money while Increasing Productivity and Efficiency

Customized procedure trays are a significant and vital improvement over how these trays used to be made, one item at a time and many times forgetting an essential piece of equipment.

Customized procedure trays serve a vital need for you the patient in that the medical staff serves you as quickly as possible without compromising your quality of care.

All medical facilities yearned to become more efficient for the sake of you the patient. Customized procedure trays were the answer globally and soon became a standard of practice to decrease an enormous amount of waste.

All tools and equipment in one place on custom procedure trays, the medical staff in hospital emergency rooms respond to patient injuries faster, with a more rapid discharge of the patient with less waste.

Hospital operating rooms saw a great increase in theater turnaround. Operations started on time and length of surgeries shortened with all equipment at the doctor’s or nurse’s fingertips and most importantly saved facilities money.

To further cut waste, medical facilities use a medical supplier who targets saving money and decreasing waste by picking up contaminated equipment and tools, sterilizing them, and delivering the customized procedure trays back to the medical facility in record time.
