RFID technology helps hospital surgical instruments disinfection intelligent management

The operating room of the hospital is one of the busiest and most important departments. Every operation affects the hearts of medical staff and patients. Surgical instruments are the main tools for surgery. It is very important to imagine. Any leaks during surgery can cause incalculable losses. The intelligent management of surgical instruments will bring great convenience. RFID radio frequency identification technology is used for multi-label and quick recognition of acquisition capability, thus realizing intelligent management of surgical instruments.

Most medical institutions have set up equipment disinfection service centers or supply departments for medical device disinfection, surgical equipment package, equipment needed for surgery, management and rental of medical equipment, and access to or purchase of equipment, implants, etc. But the main task of these service departments is infection prevention and control. The Supply Division ensures that all medical supplies are thoroughly sterilized and disinfected prior to surgery in accordance with a rigorous regulatory process.

It is also an important task for these departments to ensure proper disinfection of pallets and wash baskets. Improper disinfection of trays and cleaning blue is often considered a serious medical incident and the hospital will bear significant legal risks. Proper disinfection of the tray reduces the risk of infection and reduces the risk of liability for the hospital's surgical team.

RFID can help hospitals to manage their processes. By installing electronic tags for each device, it provides a real-time and accurate automated electronic information recording method. RFID does not require the hospital to introduce a new process system, it can seamlessly interface with the existing system processes of the hospital, and provide relevant file information for each link in the process. The entire system can also be automatically updated during instrument repair or maintenance.

RFID technology achieves the main functions:

1. Pre-operative disinfection and supply department, surgical equipment cleaning needs to go through multiple procedures, the omission of procedures may lead to potential safety hazards, and the regulatory measures to add RFID automatic identification technology can effectively solve this problem;

2, surgical equipment packaging and package management, check, surgical equipment packaging and sorting can use RFID readers to detect possible omissions in the packaging process;

3, operating room equipment management, management during the operation mainly includes preoperative checkup, postoperative checkpoint, doctor confirmation, each link needs accurate identification to avoid serious consequences of missing surgical instruments in the patient;

4. Comprehensive information management, statistical inquiry, and reporting system.

It is also very cumbersome to manage the rented equipment. The hospital will rent medical equipment and equipment that are not intended to be purchased. The hospital supply department also needs to clean and disinfect the equipment and identify them to ensure they are well maintained and preserved. Therefore, the use of RFID for these devices can also improve utilization and improve management efficiency.

Preventing surgical infections is of great concern to all medical institutions. The hospital supply department can reduce and avoid infections through automated disinfection management procedures. Strictly control all surgical instruments to be sterilized and dried as required to ensure proper storage and use of surgical instruments. . RFID can realize the automatic intelligent management of the whole disinfection process. After the hospital adopts RFID to fully manage the surgical instruments, it only needs to read all the instruments in the range within a few seconds through the RFID electronic tag reader, through the automatic acquisition. This data can be used to analyze blind spots and defects in the management process, and to form a strong basis for quality improvement and certification.
