Halyard Health to Hold 2016 SMART-FOLD Wrap Race


Do you consider yourself one of the best instrument tray wrappers in the nation? Now is your chance to prove it. Halyard Health, a global medical technology company focused on preventing infection and speeding recovery, is hosting the third annual SMART-FOLD Wrap Race in honor of International Central Service Week, Oct. 11-17.

Halyard recognizes the vital contributions that central service (CS) professionals make to the delivery of safe, high-quality patient care through cleaning, decontaminating, sterilizing and distributing medical and surgical instrumentation.

Halyard invites you to put your wrapping skills to the test. The SMART-FOLD* Wrap Race is a fun and fast-paced competition designed to test the wrapping skills and speed of CS professionals using SMART-FOLD* Sterilization Wrap, an innovative sterilization packaging designed with the toughest tasks in mind and engineered to protect heavy trays and loaner sets from tears and cuts in handling.

Practice and perfect your SMART-FOLD* tray wrapping skills and have your Halyard Health representative record a video of your fastest wrap time. If your time qualifies, you may be heading to the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management (IAHCSMM) 2016 Annual Conference & Expo in San Antonio, Texas for the Wrap Race Championship.

Round 1: The competition begins. Halyard representatives submit video entries from Jan. 4 through Feb. 1, 2016.

Round 2: Round two qualifiers are announced and Halyard representatives submit video entries from Feb. 8 through March 7, 2016.

Championship Round: Four Wrap Race finalists are announced and invited to IAHCSMM to compete head-to-head in the final round April 24-27, 2016.

CS professionals interested in competing in the SMART-FOLD* Wrap Race should contact their Halyard Health representative by Feb. 1, 2016. For additional information visit http://www.halyardhealth.com/wraprace.aspx.
