Medline – Surgical Instrument Consignment

With operating rooms being one of the most costly areas of hospital operation, eliminating shortages and surplus of surgical instruments is essential for managing costs. Medline’s consignment program is a cost-effective method for managing OR instrument costs, and helps streamline ordering and billing, minimizes pegboard and instrument clutter and offers the ability to pay only for what is used. As part of the program, Medline analyzes the hospital’s annual instrument usage to determine its initial stock, and then sets everything up once instruments arrive. The stock is routinely inventoried and replenished so the OR always has what it needs.
