What has four wheels, no brakes, and saves lives? That’s right, surgical case carts! These stainless steel superheroes are the unsung workhorses of the Sterile Processing department, and even though they only hold supplies for a short amount of time, they are a critical aspect of high functioning sterile storage workflows. On this episode 7 of Season 14 “Sterile Storage Wars,” we speak with William (Bill) Filipponi, Director Sterile Processing at North Kansas City Hospital and member of the Beyond Clean Advisory Group (BCAG) about the unique way surgical case carts move sterile goods from our departments — to the patient — and back again. Case cart programs impact everything from on-time case starts to turnovers, and point-of-use compliance to off-site transportation. Tune in for this insider’s discussion on building a case cart workflow worth bragging about! This is a great episode to pull your materials management & OR teams in for a collaborative discussion around making the best out of these rolling storage superstars!
