Operating rooms are hectic by nature. With many staff, interruptions and emergencies, the manual sponge counting process, on paper, accounts for the steps and protocols to prevent retained surgical sponges, but manual processes are prone to human error.

Distraction, multi-tasking, and time pressure or emergencies can result in discrepant or false correct counts or a retained surgical sponge.



Our goal is zero retained sponges
