Partnerships that Keep Patients Safe

Arguably, hospitals and their healthcare professionals and technicians are among the most important service providers in our world. Saving and preserving lives every day is in a service category all its own.

And hospitals, in turn, rely on incredible tools and equipment to work their miracles – surgical devices and biomedical equipment for example. Manufacturers of those items provide detailed guidelines to help ensure they’re maintained correctly and safely.

Their detailed directives include:

“I Smell Smoke…Grab that Binder!”

You’re working at the front desk at your dental practice and the building’s fire alarm goes off. What’s your first instinct? Grab your coat and personal valuables? Help the doctors and hygienists get patients off the chairs and out the door? Locate and grab the SDS binder?


Yes, one dental office administrator recently related to me how she’s been told in no uncertain terms not to leave the office in this kind of emergency situation without grabbing the three-inch binder of OSHA Safety Data Sheets.

oneSOURCE’s Partnership with Medical Device Manufacturers

I’ve spent my career developing and promoting high standards and best practices related to medical device sterility. Recently, I’ve been advising the oneSOURCE Document Management Service team on how those issues relate to their manufacturer’s Instructions for Use (IFU) document database service. (oneSOURCE also offers similar services for biomedical equipment maintenance manuals as well as dental instrument and equipment IFUs).
