O.R. efficiency

O.R. efficiency and ProcedurePak trays – less waste equals environmental benefits

One of the building blocks of O.R. efficiency – ProcedurePak® customized procedure trays – helps to reduce packaging waste. These reductions can make significant positive contributions to scaling back hospitals' carbon footprints. From pre-op assembly of components and reduced packaging material to smart waste management that reduces surgical waste, hospitals can make strides in their efforts to have a neutral impact on the environment.1

ProcedurePak trays are not only tailored to your specific needs, they also drastically reduce the amount of packaging material and have a positive impact on surgical waste reduction compared to individually packed products. ProcedurePak can reduce the volume of packaging material by 90 percent1, resulting in one less bag of waste on average for major surgery procedures.

A 2009 study shows that two UK NHS hospitals were able to cut carbon emissions from packaging by over 5.0 tonnes and reduce waste by over 2.6 tonnes after implementing ProcedurePak customized procedure trays1. The same study shows that for each kilogram of customized procedure trays, an average of 0.19 kg carbon dioxide is saved1.
