STAFF RETENTION IN SPD: 3 STRATEGIES FOR KEEPING YOUR BEST PEOPLE
by Weston "Hank" Balch, CRCST,CIS, CHL
As the certification culture continues
ReadySet Surgical provides a comprehensive, seamless platform that serves as a communication tool so the total demands of the case are captured….Loaner system tracking data for the Device Company and Hospital allow for better decision-making around how Loaners impact their bottom line and OR scheduling.
ReadySet is just what every SPD manager has been waiting for. Managing loaners has always been a reactionary process. Now with a tool like ReadySet we can take a more proactive role in preparing for cases that require borrowed sets. This includes having the things necessary such as IFU’s, tray lists, and sterilization parameters which are very important when dealing with sets that we do not own.
This is a game changer that is needed to manage loaners. It's a win for all stakeholders. CSS will have advanced notice for staffing and IFU review which will ensure that all of the required resources are available when the sets arrive.
ReadySet increases communication and accountability for the entire surgical team including sterile processing and vendors. Having the ability to access pictures , instructions for use, vendor information, and other logistics by the entire team is an incredible help to the management of these loaned devices.
Ready Set….Every tray, every time, one time and with accuracy….that’s what I need when working with the complicated and always moving world of loaners!
ReadySet is a tool that can be used in partnership with your vendor to better control loaned instruments. The communication function that allows users to know the status of trays is instrumental in ensuring we are providing the best service to our patients without putting a burden on the healthcare facility, its staff and our vendor partners.
"While REPtrax pioneered protecting the perimeter of the hospital, ReadySet Surgical has created the next logical extension by protecting the department that needs it most: The Operating Room. Their suite of OR efficiency tools has quickly become the industry standard and positively impacts industry, individual representatives, and every level of management within health providers. Above all, a safer and more efficient Operating Room translates into better patient outcomes which will be critical as we shift to quality based reimbursement models."
“The single most valuable thing ReadySet provides, for me, is simplified, streamlined communications. With ReadySet we don’t have to email or text multiple times, it’s done once for all. I have definitely recommended ReadySet. I tell people that finally there’s a tool to get everybody on the same page, a one-source solution from a company that’s receptive to feedback, even changing to meet our needs.”
