When was the last time your surgical instrument tray “recipes” were revised? Was it when you added something new? What about when an instrument is removed? In this week’s episode of the First Case “Articles On-The-Go” series, written by Paul Wafer, BS, MBA, RN, he discusses how our trays and count sheets should be optimized so that our trays are accurate and so that unused instruments are removed. “By optimizing the trays, you are apt to find improved accuracy rates and fewer missing items.” It takes a team approach to tackle the challenge of optimizing trays, but the end results are worth it!
