The purpose of this project was to improve the efficiency and accuracy of surgical instrument packaging. The traditional surgical tray assembly involves the technicians visually inspecting the appearance of each instrument. An experienced technician can recognize most types instruments in this way, however junior technicians may need help to accomplish this.
The aim of direct marking on steel instruments is both quantity and instruments can be confirmed when the reader reads on the marking. When using the traditional inspection process, staff may not recognize similar instruments with minor differences and may place them into the wrong trays. An incorrect instrument in a tray may cause problems for the surgeon using the instruments. Using Unique Device Identifiers allows the technicians to recognize the instruments by reading the markings to improve accuracy. However, this process may make the process of assembling surgical trays take longer for the technician to complete.
