Keeping The Operating Room Alive: Mitigating Operating Room Shutdowns PDF Print E-mail

The main hospital campus of a large, nonprofit, Magnet designated health care system located in Southern California was struggling with a Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD) challenged by increased processing volumes.

The C-suite was concerned that without a CSSD renovation, Operating Room (OR) shutdowns would be the result.

Challenges:

  • At 50 to 60 cases/day the CSSD had reached its capacity with no room for future growth or ability to reprocess ancillary items
  • High risk to revenue loss caused by OR shut downs and delayed cases
  • An upward trend in year over year departmental costs associated with equipment, maintenance, and overtime labor
