ER Instrument Quality with Dr. Patrick O'Malley

Posted on 01/10/2022

The Emergency Department has a unique set of needs when it comes to instrumentation. The quality of instruments in kits used in the ER can vary greatly -- a common pain point for physicians working in this department at many hospitals. On this week's episode we talked with Dr. Patrick O'Malley, who has focused much of his time on researching reusable vs. disposable instruments and the frequent pain points that come with specific instruments common to the Emergency Department. Dr. O'Malley focuses on laceration repairs which can be compared to plastic surgery in the ER and he talks about the impact of instrument quality on the perception of effectiveness from a clinician's perspective. This is one you're not going to want to miss. Hope you can join us!
