Application of rfid tags in surgical instruments


In some medical malpractices, such unimaginable situations as surgical instruments being left inside the patient's body can occur. In addition to the negligence of medical personnel, it also reveals the mistakes in the management process. Hospitals generally encounter the following difficulties in optimising the relevant management processes: for the management of surgical instruments, hospitals want to leave relevant records of use, such as: time of use, type of use, for which operation, the person in charge and other information.


However, the traditional counting and management work still relies on manpower, which is not only time-consuming and labour-intensive, but also prone to errors. Even if laser coding is used as automatic reading and identification, it is not easy to read the information because of rust and corrosion caused by blood contamination and repeated sterilisation in the course of surgery, and one-to-one code scanning and reading can not fundamentally improve management efficiency. In order to document the facts more effectively to avoid related disputes and to better manage medical processes and patients, hospitals want to leave clear records.


RFID technology due to non-contact characteristics, flexible scene adaptability, has been widely used in the medical field, the use of RFID technology to track surgical instruments, will substantially improve the accuracy and efficiency of surgical instrument management, to achieve the whole process of tracking, for the hospital to provide a more intelligent, professional It provides hospitals with a more intelligent, professional and efficient surgical management solution.


By installing RFID tags on surgical instruments, hospitals can clearly track the use of each instrument, accurately distinguish each surgical instrument belongs to the department, before, during and after surgery to track in a timely manner, greatly reducing the risk of surgical instruments are forgotten in the human body. At the same time, after the use of instruments, hospital staff can use RFID technology to detect whether there are residual surgical instruments, and timely cleaning, disinfection and other steps to ensure the health and safety of patients.


The wide application of RFID tracking technology will be the trend of the future development of medical institutions, not only can effectively prevent and avoid the occurrence of medical accidents in which the patient's surgical instruments are left inside the body, but also ensure that the disinfection of surgical instruments and other aspects of the process of tracking to a certain extent improves the quality of treatment and safety of the patient, but also increases the confidence and satisfaction of healthcare workers in their work.
