How to Optimize Custom Procedure Trays?

Working in the field of medicine can be a very exciting and rewarding career path. This is also a very busy and fast paced field of work especially if you are working in a hospital. Even general practitioner’s offices and urgent care offices see a lot of traffic throughout the course of the day and very rarely, if ever, do you have a boring day where you don’t see any patients come through the doors. It takes just a matter of minutes for your day to start out slow and before you know it you’re hours into your schedule. It is important that patients get the best care possible. This not only helps generate a good reputation for a facility but medical professionals are individuals that are dedicated to caring for others as well. It is always a goal to develop and find ways to improve patient care and to help a facility run smoother each and every day. One very simple change that can be made is the use of custom procedure trays for whatever procedures, surgeries or care is being provided. This is an item that is not only convenient for the medical staff to use on a daily basis but this also equates to better patient care overall.

What Are Custom Procedure Trays Used For?

The purpose of custom procedure trays is to house all of the specific tools needed to complete a procedure whether it be very involved or very simple. You can have a custom tray that is dedicated to simply cleaning a person’s ear canal or you can have a custom tray that is designed to be used during an open heart surgery. Both kits are incredibly convenient and important but their uses are very different and they will contain very different tool. What this basically does, is allows a medical professional to grab a custom tray and get their job done without having to worry about finding specific tools on their own and ensuring that they are sterilized and ready to be used. That can be a very time consuming process. Some of the other procedures that can utilize a custom tray can include:

-Stitching a wound as well as cleaning it and bandaging it

-The setting of a broken bone

-Performing a C-section on a patient

-Cardiac ablations

-Replacement of a pacemaker battery as well as installing one

-Angiogram of the heart and brain

Improving Patient Care

Whether a patient is in need of medical care emergently or it is a scheduled event, being efficient with patients is very important. There is often a lot of stress and anxiety that comes with being a patient and a very streamlined process makes a big difference in how people feel being in your care. Utilizing custom procedure trays allows for doctors and nurses to spend more time with patients addressing their concerns rather than prepping for a procedure. Staff members can spend some free time at work determining what kind of products are needed and these items can be ordered quickly. They can be stocked regularly and be on hand at a facility.

Utilizing custom procedure trays at a medical facility equates to better patient care and better patient satisfaction. Doctors, nurses and other medical staff also find it to be a very convenient item that makes their jobs much easier. Also, these items come sterilized in their packages, properly labeled and are ready to be used immediately. Each package comes with an expiration date that is determined based off of the items that are inside. Professionals have seen the benefit of this purchase.
