The surgical instruments management program at Hôpital Chalres LeMoyne is effective and provides the highest level of safety. There is a well–established, efficient tracking system. All instruments are identified with a unique number. When trays are prepared, instruments are logged using a scanner system. Trays are then identified with a barcode. During surgery, all instruments and devices are logged in a computer databank referenced to the patient’s name. This system makes it possible to identify every instrument used in a specific operation.
