How Bosma Enterprises is Helping Reduce Operating Room Turnover Times to Improve Efficiency and Promote Better Care

Bosma Enterprises Accelerate•OR Turnover Kits allow facilities to convert lost time into improved patient care.

COVID-19 served as a wake-up call, reminding us that reducing operating room turnover time is critical – and even more so when hospital beds are at a premium and the volume of procedures performed at surgery centers continues to increase. Despite the challenges that have arisen during the pandemic, healthcare providers are still expected to quickly adapt and continue to provide value-based care.

Provider costs are important to understanding value-based care and are even more critical when analyzing cost-savings strategies. For providers operating on thin margins, time is money. Each minute of wasted operating room time costs an average of $60-$100. 2 Services performed in the OR account for almost one-third of healthcare spending.3

In the post-COVID-19 world, converting lost time to improve patient care and increase savings will remain a priority. The average OR turnover time is 31.5 minutes, yet best practices suggest it be 15 minutes.1 That’s why many hospitals and surgery centers are turning to solutions that reduce turnover time, which can increase valuable clinical care time and the number of procedures performed.  

Stockd® supplier, Bosma Enterprises, understands every minute counts and is dedicated to advancing OR operations for their customers. Bosma’s Accelerate•OR Turnover Kits contain an assortment of disposable linens, bags, and mop heads to be used after a procedure to set up the OR suite for the next case.1 Bosma has developed Accelerate•OR Turnover Kits to enable hospitals and surgery centers to conquer some of their largest OR challenges by helping to:

Boost Efficiency

Accelerate•OR Turnover Kits contain curated products to set up the OR suite. Designed to help achieve best practice turnover times, these kits enable hospitals and surgery centers to perform more procedures and treat more patients in the same amount of time. Ten minutes off OR turnover time regains an average of 82 cases a month, and 973 cases a year.1

Promote Safety

Accelerate•OR Turnover Kits are single-use and discarded after the procedure, reducing the risk of cross contamination and supporting Association of periOperative Registered Nurses recommendations. Each kit includes an absorbent OR table sheet, which works to help keep the patient dry and comfortable.1

Lower Costs

Accelerate•OR Turnover Kits allow providers to order exactly what they need, resulting in less waste. This, in turn, helps to eliminate laundering costs, as well as replacement costs for linens and OR table pads.1

Bosma Enterprises stresses the quality of their OR products. All products are packaged in an ISO Class 8 cleanroom and their facility is ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 13485:2016 certified.1 Through their social enterprise model, every purchase creates jobs and supports training programs for people who are blind or visually impaired.

“We challenge ourselves every day to solve our customers’ business needs while, in turn, enhancing the lives of people who are blind,” says Jeff Mittman, President and CEO of Bosma Enterprises.
