Surgicount360 Software

Document your surgical sponge count.
Fight to end retained surgical sponges.


Why settle for a simple confirmation or “scan complete” message when we provide virtually unlimited reports to validate and document your sponge counts. Customize reports by procedure, service line, procedural room and staff – or aggregated data for your hospital, system or IDN. Whether micro or macro, you’ll have permanent, evidence-based data to support your internal needs or third-party audits.
