Operating theatres are simultaneously the largest cost and revenue generator for any hospital.*

Many hospitals continue to struggle to maintain a well-run operating theatre due to the large number of stake holders involved.

The delay or cancellation of an operation not only has a financial and time impact (due to the rescheduling of theatre lists, staff rostering changes and other changes required), but also can have a detrimental impact on the patient experience and recovery.

The symbiotic relationship between the operating theatre and the CSSD means that any delay in CSSD process can directly cause operating theatre delays and cancellations.

Poor quality instruments, damaged, worn instruments, even the wrong types or too many instruments can impact the CSSD process.

At B. Braun, we are able to work with our hospital customers to ensure that an optimum fleet of instruments is available for continual use by offering the following:

Quickscan — A Surgical Asset Management Baseline Assessment
