«The KENUS® instrument management system helps the central sterilisation department cope with its huge organisational challenges.»

The large number and variety of instruments poses a great organisational challenge

The lack of well-defined packing processes is a major issue in central sterilisation departments

A hospital holds a complex range of instruments

  • An average hospital has more than 10,000 instruments, consisting of around 1,000 different models
  • these are divided into an average of more than 250 sets
  • and then into an average of more than 500 individual instruments

 

The logistical challenges go hand-in-hand with complex surgeries

  • Every surgical procedure requires a different allocation of sets and individual instruments
  • After each procedure, the instruments need to be cleaned, maintained and undergo a functional check in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions

 

A defective packing process can lead to loss of quality in surgical procedures

  • Incorrectly packed sets can have considerable impacts (a rush of activity in the operating theatre, inefficiency, costs) etc.
  • Packing the sets without a detailed packing list means a high-level of knowledge will be required and can lead to errors
