Central service professionals can put their sterile-wrap skills to the test in Kimberly-Clark's Smart-Fold Wrap Race, a fun and fast-paced competition designed to test the wrapping skills and speed of CS professionals using Smart-Fold Sterilization Wrap.
Smart-Fold is an innovative sterilization packaging designed to provide the durability necessary for the most demanding applications. With its triple-layer reinforcement, Smart-Fold is 64 percent more durable than the leading sterilization wrap, to protect the heaviest procedure trays and loaner sets from tears and cuts that can occur during handling.
CS professionals interested in competing in the Smart-Fold Wrap Race should contact their Kimberly-Clark representative now through Jan. 13, 2014. Participants do not need to be Kimberly-Clark customers to participate and can find a local rep at: http://www.kchealthcare.com/find-a-sales-rep.aspx.
Here's how the competition will work:
Round One: Kimberly-Clark representatives will visit participants’ facilities by January 2014 to videotape their fastest Smart-Fold wrapping times. Submissions with the fastest wrapping times will advance to round two.
Round Two: Kimberly-Clark representatives will videotape the round two qualifiers’ fastest wrap times between January and February 2014. All round two video entries will appear on the competition’s official website: www.wraprace2014.com.
Championship Round: The four fastest wrappers from round two will be invited to compete in the Kimberly-Clark Smart-Fold Wrap Race championships at the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management (IAHCSMM) 2014 annual conference and expo, May 4-7, 2014.
Crowning the Champion: At IAHCSMM, the fastest wrapper will be crowned the 2014 Smart-Fold Wrap Race Champion and will be awarded the 2014 Wrap Race championship trophy.
“Kimberly-Clark’s Smart-Fold Sterilization Wrap was designed to meet the most rigorous industry standards for safety and performance, including resistance to fire, lint, abrasion, and microbial contamination, while enabling users to wrap faster and easier,” says Lon Taylor, marketing director of surgical and infection prevention, Kimberly-Clark Health Care. “We are excited to engage and celebrate Central Services professionals through a friendly competition to demonstrate their skills and speed.”
