Grand Theft Case Cart: Pilfering, Supplies, and the OR Scramble

Have you ever seen a case cart taped shut, with the words “NO STEALING!” written across the tape? Have you ever grabbed instruments or supplies that you needed off the nearest case cart? Or, have you ever been the one who’s instruments or supplies were taken? Pilfering supplies from the nearest case cart when we are in a hurry might be convenient, but it always leaves our coworkers in a bind, scrambling to find what they need for their cases. On this week’s episode of the First Case podcast, we speak with Lizabeth Craig, RN, circulating nurse at Advent Health about her experience in the OR with case cart accuracy, production, and the dreaded pilfering. Listen in as she shares how she’s dealt with case carts throughout her career – the good, the bad, and the ugly!

We hope you enjoy the show!
