Surgical Trays: Quality Assurance Check Form for Instrument Set Mobile App
The purpose of Surgical Trays: Quality Assurance Check Form for Instrument Set mobile app is to provide a means of monitoring the quality of trays that are assembled by the service staff as well as being a quality improvement process.
How does it work?
The service manager shall be responsible in selecting the type of trays and the frequency of the monitoring those trays (Each hospital puts in the sample size, example might be 20 trays a month). The desired threshold / benchmark is 100%. Is that all instrument trays shall be assembled, packaged, sterilized and stored according to standards. The random checking of the trays provides a means of ensuring that each patient has a complete and sterile tray. Checking the quality of trays is part of the hospital infection control /risk management TQM program. Upon direction of the service manager the type and number of trays to be monitored will be established. Only completed trays will be audited. Audited trays will be taken from a pool of trays that are ready to be used. The trays have been inspected, wrapped and sterilized and place on the shelf ready for use
