As nursing shortages continue to loom over the healthcare industry, hospitals and ORs are facing increased pressure to do more with less. This can lead to burnout, turnover, and a decrease in patient outcomes. However, DinamicOR offers a solution that can navigate some of these issues and improve OR efficiency.
With the DinamicOR Back Table Solution, OR staff can benefit from consistent setup protocols that reduce frustration, anxiety, and increase job satisfaction. The solution includes an adjustable back table, a durable drape, and a Workflow Management App that can be customized to fit specific needs. The multiple tiers of the back table allow for 92 percent instrument visibility at all times, reducing tray movements by 88 percent, and decreasing the amount of weight OR staff has to lift by up to 450 pounds.
Additionally, the solution significantly reduces the amount of heavy lifting OR staff needs to do, which is the number one cause of surgical technologist injury, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Used in over 25,000 operating room procedures, the DinamicOR Back Table Solution has been proven to reduce turnover time by 33 percent, improve efficiency, and increase patient safety by minimizing sterile field violations by up to 58 percent.
But DinamicOR’s solution doesn’t stop at the back table. The Workflow Management App can also alleviate nursing shortages and improve OR efficiency by serving as a database for shared information. The app can efficiently transfer procedural and surgeon-specific knowledge, onboard new personnel, and provide hands-on learning. This guided set-up mitigates risk during operations by allowing your staff to assemble all trays and verify every instrument, ensuring consistent results for every operation.
As hospital c-suites worry about money loss, surgeon-consistency, and OR staff having to do more work with less support, DinamicOR offers a solution that can ease those concerns. By implementing the DinamicOR Back Table Solution and Workflow Management App, ORs can improve efficiency, increase patient safety, and alleviate some of the stress and pressure on OR staff.
