The Secret to Rapid Room Turnover

Tear open an OR turnover kit for all the supplies you need to ready the room for the next case.

endoscopy AT YOUR FINGERTIPS Jennifer Brown, RN, endoscopy nurse manager at Gastroenterology Associates of Central Virginia in Lynchburg, Va., opens the contents of her GI turnover kit while Sandy Fout, LPN, performs scope setup.

This is what cleaning the OR between cases should be like. Fast, efficient and economical. Just tear open a pre-packaged kit that contains all of the supplies you need to ready the room for the next case so that you can get the OR back in order — and back in business — quickly. From disposable sheets and armboard covers to plastic bags, mopheads and wiping cloths, OR turnover kits put everything right there, right at your fingertips, so that you can start the next case as soon as possible and avoid cross-contamination.
