The University awarded a contract for sterilization: surgical trays & implantable device.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University services.
The emergency purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate action was needed to prevent any disruption in University/Hospital services. For many years the Hospital utilizes a Novation/Vizient vendor for sterilization of surgical trays and implantable devices. On average the sterilization process takes around six hours for surgical trays and up to eight hours for implantable. The sterilization process consists of on-site vendor staff that perform cleaning, steaming, organizing and wrapping the trays and implantable devices. On a typical day the vendor processes an estimated 350 trays/implantable devices and up to 7,000 per month. The cost to sterilize a tray/implant comes out to $37.27 per tray.

The sterilization services are critical to Hospital OR operations. UI Health has contracted with Huron Consulting Services, LLC, pursuant to a solicitation award reference ALS280 in conjunction with Hospital task orders. The contractual services will perform an analysis of the operations within Central Sterilization to assist UI Health with complying with industry standards (i.e., AAMI/AORN/TJC/OSHA). This is essential for the eventual RFP design and content. The Consultant Services will include: (1) evaluation of case cart and tray accuracy, inventory management, sterility and quality control practices, preference card accuracy, proper tray inventory and turnover processes, error rates compared to surgical case volume, or industry standards at similar institutions; and (2) review of Standard Operating Procedures for completeness & lean process designs within UC Health Central Sterile, OR satellite & Labor & Delivery Operating areas, as detailed in the attached Exhibit A to this Task Order.
