Operating room delays translate to lost money by the minute
OR time delays are critical to the profitability of each patient case. Taken together, seemingly small delays can result in profit erosion for your entire healthcare facility.
When you consider that a certain number of all surgical procedures experience a delay, you may be giving away your profit margin without realizing it. These delays can be caused by inefficiencies and eat away at profits rapidly.
One common cause of delays may be product waste.
A small change for a great impact
Implementing small changes to avoid or eliminate delays can have a positive impact on your bottom line.

Ways to reduce operating room delays
Two examples of how small changes can reverse delay trends include:
1. Choose Proper Gowns & Masks
Problem: Strikethrough on gowns or face masks can occur as a result of wearing the wrong protection-level for the procedure.
Delay time: 10-15-minutes to stop, re-scrub, replace mask, re-gown and re-glove.
HALYARD Solution: With AERO CHROME* gowns from HALYARD*, the color difference makes it easier to choose between AAMI Level 3 protection (for most procedures) and AAMI Level 4 for longer, high-fluid procedures. Similarly, PPE CAT III certified respirators help wearers choose the appropriate level of facial protection.
2. Use the Right Wrap
Problem: Tears in sterilisation wrap require replacement sets or re-sterilization.
Delay time: 8-60-minutes for flash sterilisation or up to an hour to obtain a terminally-sterilised replacement set.
HALYARD Solution: HALYARD* SMART-FOLD* Sterilisation wrap has a high level of bacterial filtration effectiveness in the operating room, the convenient pull-tabs and patented design make aseptic presentation quicker than ever.
Our products, such as HALYARD* SMART-FOLD* Sterilisation Wraps and Custom Procedure Trays,
along with helpful guides to proper PPE selection can help your facility realize efficiencies and savings, with a positive impact on hospital profitability and patient outcomes.
