There’s no doubt that hospital staffing shortages are a major issue nationwide. Every day, decision-makers are faced with the difficult choice of whether to postpone surgeries due to a lack of available staff. It’s certainly not good for the patient, OR your bottom line.
If you’ve been thinking there’s nothing you can do about it, and that you’ll just have to wait until COVID-19 relaxes its grip, you should be aware that there are alternatives that can significantly increase your operating room efficiencies and reduce the impact on your bottom line.
Read on to learn more.
The DinamicOR Back Table Solution
We’re just going to come right out and say it.
A fast way to increase your OR efficiencies by as much as a 33 percent increase is to install the DinamicOR Back Table Solution in your operating rooms. That may sound like an overstatement, but it’s not. DinamicOR Back Table Solution streamlines your operations in several ways that help you save time and effort. One of the immediate gains you’ll recognize is much greater consistency and uniformity in each of the operating rooms at your hospital.
The Back Table itself is an adjustable table that comes with its own durable drape and can be configured in any way that’s convenient for each OR. When medical devices and implements are arranged on the table, 92 percent of them are instantly viewable, making retrieval very rapid and efficient. That means there’ll be no more fumbling around at critical times, trying to find the right tool for the job. When every table in all the operating rooms is set up this same way, that will create consistency throughout, and every OR will become more efficient.
Not only that but having the DinamicOR Back Table Solution in your operating rooms means that OR staff won’t need to be lifting and stacking heavy trays any longer. Better working conditions mean more satisfied employees.
Efficiencies in training
Another key component of the DinamicOR Back Table Solution is the DinamicOR+ Workflow Management App, and this can simplify and streamline training efforts at your facility, both for experienced staff members and for newcomers recently hired.
After you’ve loaded in all the information about your medical procedures and surgeries, new hires can consult the App to learn all the step-by-step processes they need to know. Not only does this create uniformity in staff training, but it frees up your experienced personnel so they can bring more value to procedures, as opposed to training personnel.
Your veteran staffers can also consult the App to ensure knowledge of the processes associated with a given surgical procedure, especially those that are performed less often. The more you use the Workflow App, the more efficient your operation will become because everyone will be on the same page and individualized training will become unnecessary. No more running around in crisis mode every day. Your medical facility might then begin to take on the appearance of a well-oiled machine.
The bottom line is – your bottom line doesn’t have to keep taking hits because of the pandemic. You don’t have to simply roll with the punches during this pandemic – there’s something you can do about it. Take the first step by contacting us today to set up a demo.
