Hi, I was wondering if any managers out there have suggestions or things that they have tried in their unit to address the issue of increasing supply costs for their unit?
I am writing a mock proposal about cost saving strategies from material management perspective for a surgical unit. Other nurses and doctors have mentioned things like overuse/misuse of gauze or providing a refresher course for sterile technique for OR staff so materials aren't wasted. Would love to discuss anything that has worked for your unit or any cost draining areas you'd like to point out?
Thanks for your help!!
