“With our old container system, we relied upon a different technology to sterilize our retina lenses. That process took about 24 hours, meaning we could use a lens for a single case and that was it for the day. We are now performing up to eight retina cases a day when our retina physician is on site because we can turn over our trays that much faster. In addition, we have avoided the need to purchase more lenses. Switching to ONE TRAY® transformed our approach to sterilization. Most importantly, we no longer need to perform immediate-use steam sterilization (IUSS). Without ONE TRAY® we were not always able to turn the trays over fast enough to meet the needs of our doctors and their cases because the sterilization cycles took over 45 minutes. With ONE TRAY®, we can perform in much less time and can now consistently meet guidelines from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and the New York State Department of Health.
ONE TRAY® is so cost-effective because of how much money you save on instrumentation. ONE TRAY® is an investment, but one that quickly delivers a positive return. You will achieve significant savings when you look at your water usage, electrical usage and other areas where you cut costs. You need to evaluate the whole system as a package.
And I can’t overlook ONE TRAY®’s great customer support. The representatives we work with are simply outstanding. They were amazing during our transition to the ONE TRAY® system and are always available today to assist us if we need them.”
