Testimonial from Debbie Clow - Sterile Services Manager, Peterborough City Hospital

“With the introduction of the Aesculap Container Systems, workflow has increased as the need for paper has gone. The issues associated with loan sets has also been addressed using containers, we no longer have issues of cancelled or postponed operations due to damaged or torn sets. Theatres can quickly and easily identify their sets and the ergonomic design of the containers protects the work force from lifting difficult sized trays. The contents are protected from damage by the robust nature of the container system and it’s ability to allow for better utilisation of the autoclaves. Over the coming years the trust will show a reduced processing and waste disposal cost as the paper cost has gone along with its increased each year in value, staff time in processing is reduced and ease of quick identification achieved in the storage area. The transition to a container system will certainly streamline the department for the future.”
