What's New? Barcode Scanners for Dental Instrument Tracking
In the wake of COVID 19, concerns about infection control and disease prevention are at an all-time high. When it comes to ensuring patient safety in this area, technology can provide a helping hand.
Take our new digital barcode scanners for dental instruments, currently being used by a number of National Dental Care Group practices. These devices let practice staff easily track and monitor equipment use, so they can ensure your safety by implementing robust sterilisation and infection control processes.
Here are some of the ways National Dental Care Group is keeping you safe and providing the highest standard of infection control through the use of barcode scanners.
What is a barcode scanner?
A barcode scanner is a device that enables the user to scan dental instruments and monitor when they were used. This means we can identify exactly which instruments were used on which patients on which day.
What are the benefits of using a barcode scanner for dental instruments?
The use of barcode scanners in our dental practices offers a number of significant benefits, including:
Reduced risk of infection
By effectively tracking instrument use, barcode scanners let us minimise the threat of infection throughout the practice.
Better protection for patients and staff
Robust instrument tracking using barcode scanners allows us to implement stricter sterilisation and infection control processes, to keep both patients and staff members safe and protected.
More peace of mind
By going above and beyond standard requirements, our barcode scanners provide extra peace of mind that our practices are maintaining the highest standard of infection control.
With the ability to track and trace every instrument, the barcode scanner means that in the highly unlikely event of a breach, we can pinpoint exactly which instruments were used on which patient at which appointment.
