Idea Exchange: Label instruments with engraved pet tags

By staff

We used to have difficulty labeling our endoscopy instruments because the labels would wash off every time we disinfected the instruments. We decided to have engraved pet tags made for each instrument and attach them with a key ring. We also color-coded the tags based on which endoscope they work with. Now we can easily find the instrument we need.
