Bupa Cromwell Hospital, London was the first hospital in the capital to benefit from an innovation by one of its leading Orthopaedic Surgeons John Hardy, a Consultant in Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgery.
John, the inventor of the P3 Lavage Tray, said that he was delighted that the tray was now available for vascular, cardiothoracic, plastic and orthopaedic surgery at the Bupa Cromwell Hospital.
John said: “The inflatable disposable lavage tray solves three problems. It keeps the theatre suite clean during surgery, it reduces the risk of cross infection for patients and staff and it allows the anaesthetist to better measure fluid loss during long surgical procedures.”
The hospital is very excited by the recent breakthrough which represents a new era in cleaner and safer operating for its theatre complex.
Bernie Bishop, Programme Manager Surgical Directorate: “We have a good record as a hospital with a low risk of surgical site infection and this innovation will help us maintain our great results in the league table for low risks of complications after surgery. In addition the P3 Lavage Tray will allow efficiency of theatre time as turn around after surgery will be shorter”.
