The Benefits Of Disposable Medical Supplies
As the medical field continues to grow and develop, new custom medical devices are needed to help patients better recover from surgeries. We recognize a variety of needs in healthcare so we do not limit our designs to one specific medical area. With the vertical design and manufacturing process, we have complete control over designs and final products and can ensure every tool is up to our high-standards. The fast-paced medical world is beginning to implement disposable medical tools because of their many benefits to doctors, healthcare centres, and patients.
Benefits of Disposable Medical Supplies
- Decontamination – Disposable medical tools ensure a contamination free instrument before each surgery. When a tool comes to the healthcare centre pre-sterilized, the decontamination or lengthy sterilization process isn’t needed, therefore saving healthcare centres money.
- Traceability – Once a tool is used, disinfected, and put into storage, it’s cleanliness isn’t traceable. Disposable, one-time-use tools ensure the ability to account for all pieces of inventory and full traceability. The lot number that each piece has is able to be traced back to the medical manufacturing plant to prevent inconsistencies and issues.
- Supply Logistics – Inventory that is lost, broken, or stolen takes a significant amount of money out of the bottom line of a healthcare centre. Single-use instruments allow for supply tracking and ensure there isn’t an abundance of one tool, which can tie up capital.
- Risk Management – Infection and the mitigation of spreading of diseases is one of the highest priorities in a medical facility. Contaminated instruments spread infection, create health issues, and can complicate surgical recovery. When instruments are used once, there is no risk of cross-contamination between patients.
- Cost Allocation – Accounting for each tool used in a surgery helps accurately calculate the cost of each surgery. When using reusable tools, the mix of initial cost, sterilization cost, labour cost, and utilities can make it difficult to accurately account for total cost of procedures.
- Waste – While many argue the amount of waste single-use tools create, the energy, water, detergent, steam, and electricity used to decontaminate reusable tools is more detrimental to the environment than disposable tools.
