Retained surgical sponges (RSS) have a costly ripple effect, impacting health, mental wellbeing, quality of life, finances and facility reputation. SurgiCount Technology not only helps protect your patients, but also your bottom line.
Facility accountability to stem preventable events is mounting as is evident by the increasing cost and consequences for retained surgical items.
“The SurgiCount Sponges are more expensive than regular sponges. But they’re less expensive than a retained item… the cost of something retained would be much higher. It’s also better patient care. It’s not just about cost, but the trauma and inconvenience to a patient.”
