Count us in.

For zero retained surgical sponges. For certainty when it counts.

According to The Joint Commission, retained surgical sponges (RSS) have consistently been the #1 Never Event for 10 consecutive years. This serious incident impacts hospital systems, staff, and patients, yet despite policies and procedures changing, the issue persists.

We think it is time to put an end to retained surgical sponges because we are committed to patient safety. Together, with you, Stryker is all in on a journey to enable zero RSS. Can we count on you?
