Loaner instrument trays and implants are delivered directly to sterile processing through a back corridor so reprocessing techs can check in and check out instrument sets in an easy, organ- ized way. The facility also boasts a dedicated storage room for hous- ing the numerous patient positioning devices, such as a Jackson Table, needed during spine procedures. C-arm support Radiation techs have plenty of room to maneuver C-arms toward and away from the surgical bed. The ORs have dedicated electrical outlets for powering the C-arms and dedicated video integration cables wired into the wall through which captured images are automatically downloaded into the facility's PACs system.
