Preference cards are a ticket to efficency

Preference cards are the key to operational proficiency in hospitals. Deviations from preference cards are detrimental to hospitals in terms of patient safety, financial costs and time efficiency.

Increasing healthcare costs require efficient operational procedures, in order to ensure not only patient safety, but also to limit unnecessary expenditure.

We recently talked to a scrub nurse about their experiences with the preference cards at their hospital.

Out of 100 surgical procedures only 20% were completed error free.


Approximately 60% of setups were missing items and 70% had items that were not needed and were thrown away.

As a result of incorrect preference cards, 40% of procedures resulted in delayed surgical turnaround times.

Increased financial costs are not the only side effect of incorrect preference cards as there is at least 1 patient injury every week in an average size operating theatre complex.

Inaccurate and out-of-date preference cards result in real costs. The mistakes in the process are adding millions to the cost of surgeries annually and there is no way to audit the cost of surgical procedures.

Fortunately, ScrubIT provides the solution to this issue. Our easy to use app allows your hospital to keep preference cards up-to-date, which means that surgeries will be correct every time. ScrubIT has also streamlined the surgical setup process to combine multiple setups into a simple checklist.

ScrubIT will run your theatre setups process from the preference card through to instrument ready.
