Navigating challenges of
connecting recalls to patients,
inventory
(August: www.ormanager.com/
navigating-challenges-of-connectingrecalls-to-patients-inventory/)
Hospitals
often use secondary sources for
recall notifications of tissue, non-biologic
implants, and medical devices. However,
these lists do not include two critical
pieces of information: the identification of
affected patient cases and an inventory
item's storage location. This article examines
the challenges facilities face in recall
matching, the difficulty in managing recalls
using siloed data from multiple sources,
and how leveraging a data-integrated software
can help to eliminate these barriers.
-Tracey Berkowitz is division
marketing lead at InVita
Healthcare Technologies, a
provider of software solutions
for end-to-end management
of tissue, implants, explants, warranty
claims, and recalls.
Clinical evaluation of latest
miscount management tool
(August: www.ormanager.com/
clinical-evaluation-of-latest-miscountmanagement-tool/)
Amid
the rise of complex surgical procedures
that require hundreds of needles, a
nationwide nursing shortage, and the use
of complex and delicate instruments, miscounts
are on the rise. Here, a surgeon discusses
a recent multinational study on the
efficacy of the Melzi Sharps Finder, a tool
for helping manage miscounts and mitigate
the risk of retained surgical sharps.
We offer a special thank you to our regular
contributors who consistently share
expert commentary on top-of-mind issues
with the OR Manager community.

Tackling internal objections to
single-use device reprocessing
(January: www.ormanager.com/tacklinginternal-objections-to-single-use-devicereprocessing/)
Single-use
device reprocessing offers financial
and environmental benefits, but
ASCs may be reluctant to pursue this strategy.
Luckily, the right tools and strategies
can help overcome contract limitations,
legacy perceptions, surgeon skepticism,
and other common objections.

The
lessons from past health crises, particularly
the recent COVID-19 pandemic
that continues to stress our healthcare

UV disinfection technology with the human
element of skilled healthcare workers can
help to safeguard public health in the face
of future challenges.

Mastering social media responsibility:
A guide for OR leaders
(November/December: www.ormanager.
com/mastering-social-mediaresponsibility-a-guide-for-or-leaders/)
Social
media platforms provide incredible
opportunities for collaboration, professional
networking, and sharing best practices. For
healthcare workers, it is equally important to
navigate potential pitfalls such as maintaining
patient confidentiality, upholding professional
boundaries, and promoting a positive
online presence. By acknowledging this gap
and addressing it explicitly in educational
initiatives, leaders can bridge the divide and
ensure their staff understand the professional
implications of their online presence.
