We are excited to announce a new feature in our Kit Check kit and tray restocking solution—Sanitization Check. We added this functionality to help hospitals keep track of sanitized kits and trays, both during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
“We were hearing that a big issue for a number of our customers was making sure kits, trays, and their contents were sanitized before and after being used in a COVID-19 patient’s room,” says Kit Check Product Manager Nathalie Aferiat. “We wanted to take the guesswork out of the equation so our clinicians can focus helping patients.”
The feature works as a Kit Master setting that allows hospitals to designate a “sanitization check” during dispatch. If this setting is turned on in the app, a checkbox appears on the dispatch screen, allowing the pharmacist or technician to indicate whether a tray has been cleaned or sanitized. The hospital can decide to make the setting optional or required. If the latter, the system will not allow the tray to be dispatched unless the box is checked.
More than 20 Kit Check customers are already using this feature. “We know that health care workers are working at 120% during this pandemic,” says Kit Check Director of Clinical Solutions Jennifer Symon. “We are committed to doing anything we can to help those on the front lines.”
