A custom tray is going to provide a number of advantages for your practice; especially when it comes to arenas of operation that have a high degree of frenetic activity. You’re going to experience days–and sometimes weeks, or even months–at your practice where the workload never seems to end. As a matter of fact, it becomes rather constant. That constant, busy atmosphere will be replete with mistakes even in the best operations; these can’t be entirely avoided. But you can plan for them.
Since custom trays come sterilized beforehand, and remain that way if they are accurately stored, you don’t have to waste any time sterilizing specific instruments in an emergency. Say a patient comes into your clinic, which specializes in a certain operation, right at the end of your regular operational hours. They should have gone to the emergency room (which is also a place that benefits from custom trays), but instead they came to you. Well, normally you’d tell them to go elsewhere; but they need help immediately. Instead of having to send them off, or keep them waiting while equipment is sterilized, you can use a custom tray that has been previously prepared and literally save the day.
It is also more cost-effective to manage instruments via the custom tray, as you know what you have, where you have it, and how available it is. Order several echelons of custom tray, and you’ll be good to go perpetually.
While some instruments in a custom tray may be those which can be kept for later use, the majority are designed for disposal; so you don’t have to worry about waste. Some custom tray outlets even have measures in place where reusable instruments can be sent to the organization which packaged them initially. They are recycled in a perpetually sterilized way which additionally saves your practice money.
The custom tray represents a safer environmental alternative, as the carbon footprint which results from the energy output in conventional sterilization measures can be consolidated to a single location who produces custom trays.
The custom tray is an exceptional innovation in modern medicine, and is a way that resources, patient health, practice resources, and environmental stability can all be preserved simultaneously.
