our promise

Making healthcare better begins with a commitment. A promise to work harder and reach further, not just by developing products and technologies, but with programs and business practices as well. Our SurgiCount Promise risk-sharing program is an innovative first for us that protects your investment with up to $5 million in product-liability indemnification and implementation cost rebate.
Our promise to you:

Shift product cost risk from you

Review any retained surgical sponge event submission and notify you of the outcome

Provide up to $5 million in product liability indemnification

Rebate you the incremental cost of implementing the SurgiCount Safety-Sponge System over your previous sponge spend (three year maximum)

Your promise to us:

Install and use the SurgiCount Safety-Sponge System on every procedure where x-ray detectable sponges are utilized and hospital policy requires sponge counts be performed

Use SurgiCount and SAFE-T Lap sponges in 100% of procedures

Install SurgiCount360 Software with e-mail notifications activated and monitored

Submit your SurgiCount360 patient reports to us for validation
