Smart-Fold Wrap Race Returns

Halyard Health is out to find the fastest wrapper in the second annual Smart-Fold Wrap Race competition, a fun and fast-paced competition for Sterile Processing and Central Services (CS) professionals. Last year, more than 170 CS professionals entered the competition and the top wrappers demonstrated their skills in less than 10 seconds.

If you are a CS professional who can wrap really fast this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. Participants do not need to be Halyard Health customers to participate, but will need to use Halyard Smart-Fold Wrap for their contest entry.

This is a fun and fast-paced competition designed to test the wrapping skills and speed of CS professionals using Smart-Fold Sterilization Wrap, a sterilization packaging designed with the toughest tasks in mind, engineered to protect heavy trays and loaner sets from tears and cuts in handling.

CS professionals interested in competing in the Smart-Fold Wrap Race should contact their Halyard Health representative, who will visit participants’ facilities to videotape their fastest Smart-Fold wrapping times. The fastest wrappers will advance in the competition for an opportunity to be crowned the 2015 Smart-Fold Wrap Race Champion at the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management (IAHCSMM) 2015 Annual Conference and Expo, May 3-6, 2015.

The delivery of safe, top quality patient care is critical in the hospital setting and CS professionals are among the most vital contributors on this front, responsible for cleaning, decontaminating, sterilizing and distributing medical and surgical instrumentation to the operating room. Using Smart-Fold Sterilization Wrap in this fun competition, CS professionals have an opportunity to demonstrate their hard work and dedication to preventing infections and keeping patients safe. •
