Operating room nurses have more time for patients

The use of Mölnlycke Health Care ProcedurePak packs is supporting the growth of surgical activity at AZ Sint-Jan Bruges-Osten, Belgium.


“18% increase in number of surgeries achieved by deploying ProcedurePak trays and optimizing processes. Overtime in the O.R. was cut down and patient safety improved,” says Prof. Michael Greiling,
German Institute for Workflow Management in the Healthcare Service (IWiG).

The results from a multicentre study conducted in five hospitals in Europe show that the use of ProcedurePak customised procedure packs led to substantial efficiency gains2.

In one of the hospitals observed, 11 packs were used for a total of 2,785 interventions that year. The freed up resources from time and cost savings and process optimisation enabled 500 more interventions than the year before, meaning an increase of 18%.

In another hospital, the number of surgery procedures increased by 37.5%, from 40 to 55 per day.

Strengthened and improved safety standards

ProcedurePak customised procedure packs help to reduce the risk of infection1. With fewer packages to open, the risk of aseptic mistakes is decreased. With shorter patient stays in the O.R., exposure time is reduced. One in every five customised procedure packs sold in Europe is a ProcedurePak pack4 and ProcedurePak packs are used for more than 3.5 million surgical procedures every year5.
