As with many hospital initiatives, to achieve maximum potential with a reprocessing program, a physician or leader should be championing it. When there wasn’t someone overseeing St. Joseph’s program full time, the savings plateaued at about $750,000 for a couple of years, McManus says. He notes that there should be demonstrations for hospital staff of the reprocessed products and how they perform, side by side with the new devices.
“It is important to have somebody dedicate a certain period of time to ensure the collections are taking place and physicians are continually updated,” McManus says. You need to have somebody on top of it and reviewing the numbers and giving education to those who need it.”
