National Survey – OR Cancellations

Apr 2, 2019

According to a recent national survey, “Nearly half (40 percent) of respondents revealed they’ve actually canceled a case, and more than two-thirds (69 percent) have delayed a case because of missing supplies. Furthermore, 27 percent have seen or heard of an expired product being used on a patient, and 23 percent have seen or heard of a patient harmed due to a lack of supplies.”

Knowing where your medical supplies reside and the right quantities to have on hand is paramount to maintaining a smooth-running, safe, and efficient hospital environment.  DSC has the experience and programs to help your facility:

  • Collect baseline data to establish a verifiable starting point.
  • Assist with benchmarking needs.
  • Analyze product flow and accountability, and help identify and correct weaknesses in your system.
  • Improve your Item Master data.
  • Review your consignment programs and contracts, finding you money and minimizing consignment liability.

These are just some of the programs that we are currently providing to healthcare facilities nationwide.
