Read the following scenario:
Dr. Smith has a full morning of minor office surgeries scheduled for
today. Sarah, his nurse, has set up the room and prepared the patient.
Prior to starting, Dr. Smith requests anesthetic without epinephrine due
to the location of the surgical site. Searching the drawers and supply
closet, Sarah reports, “We don’t have any.”
Fortunately, Sarah was able to borrow a vial from the physician in an
adjacent office suite. Investigation by the office manager reveals that
the supply was not reordered when the previous stock was disposed of
due to its expiration date. This disruption in supply chain management
resulted in an inefficient use of physician time and an uncomfortable
situation in the presence of a patient.
Create a 2-page executive summary explaining to your staff the
significant of stocking, placing timely orders, and provide a step by
step method on what to do in order to avoid this type of situation in
Dr. Smith’s office.
