Operating Room Pan Inventory
To establish a system for the OR pan inventory management that addresses additions and deletions to OR pans
maintained by the Surgical Services Department.

B. To identify individuals within the department who are responsible for inventory management and
decision concerning inventory.
A. All changes to OR pan inventory should be notified to the Business Operations Manager, Implant
Coordinator or the Materials Coordinator.
B. A quarterly pan inventory count of five random owned pans will be completed by the Implant
Coordinator or Materials Coordinator. The Business Operations Manager and/or the Implant
Coordinator will identify which pans to count based on usage and total cost of the pans.
Consignment pans do not need to be counted due to the vendors counting those pans.

Management directly under OR Pans. These counts will be compared to what is currently
documented for these pans.
D. Changes will be made in the Reprocessing software system and the PeopleSoft OR pan inventory.
The only changes that will be made in PeopleSoft are par level changes per contracts.
