Our Products & Procedure Packs

At Rocialle Healthcare, we supply custom procedure packs as well as everyday consumables for use in medical & surgical settings, such as dressings, dressing packs, polyware, instruments, drapes and gowns.

 

We are a first choice provider of ready-made packs to the NHS, which improve infection control, reduce waiting times by improving efficiency, reduce costs of procurement & admin, improve stock finance & reduce waste.

Rocialle Healthcare’s medical packs each contain the consumable items required to perform a procedure, ensuring that all of the required items are at hand without the need to spend time selecting and opening several different packs.

Less handling of the items is also more compatible with aseptic procedure.

Why Choose a Procedure Pack?

  • Standardise procedures and embed the prevention of HCAI in everyday practice

    It is a legal requirement for healthcare providers to implement The Code of Practice for Prevention and Control of Healthcare Associated Infections (Health Act 2006.) This states that ‘effective prevention and control of HCAI has to be embedded into everyday practice and applied consistently to everyone’.

    The adoption of procedure packs is a giant step towards the completion of this objective. A Rocialle Healthcare pack provides the same items each time the procedure is performed and is packed in a way that facilitates the consistent laying out of these items.

  • Enable nurses to spend time caring instead of picking and unwrapping the items required for surgery

    An extensive study† undertaken in Germany showed that the use of procedure packs reduced the resources required for the daily pre-selection of surgical products by in excess of 30%, the resources required for picking of items for individual surgical procedures by 57%, and operating room set-up times by more than 36%. These efficiency gains mean that more of the nurses’ time can be spent caring; improving both patient experience and staff morale.

  • Improve efficiency, reducing waiting times by increasing the number of procedures that can be completed each day

    Studies have shown that the use of procedure packs dramatically reduces the amount of time taken to prepare for a procedure. A study conducted at a day surgery unit in the UK in 2005 found that the average time taken to pick and set-up for each procedure was reduced from twenty-two minutes to five minutes and four seconds when procedure packs were introduced. This increase in efficiency means that more procedures can be conducted and patient waiting limes reduced.

  • Reduce the costs of procurement and other administration

    Because one procedure pack contains many different components, a tray is ordered from one supplier instead of numerous orders for components being made to several different suppliers. Similarly, stock keeping is greatly simplified.

  • Release funds currently tied up in stocks of components

    Before the introduction of procedure packs, most hospitals will be storing a variety of sutures, drapes and numerous other items. The average theatre store room may contain around £50,000 worth of equipment at any time. The ‘just in time’ delivery of procedure packs allows for this stockholding to be depleted, releasing most of the value and freeing up the space for alternative uses.

  • Reduce waste

    The study* conducted at the day surgery unit showed that the introduction of procedure packs reduced the amount of discarded packaging such that the number of clinical waste bags required was almost halved.
