Not enough time for patients
The increase in numbers of surgery procedures, along with complex procurements, staff cutbacks and inefficient administration can result in reduced patient time. Valuable staff time is not used in an optimal manner, which in turn might cause healthcare professionals to experience unnecessary stress.
However, reducing O.R. setup time could mean significant time-, and subsequently, cost savings. Reduced stress among the O.R. staff may also lead to improved outcomes for patients, as well as increased job satisfaction and lower staff turnover. Further efficiency may be achieved by providing effective and easy-to-use equipment. All in all, this leads to increased time and cost savings, as well as more time for patients.
