Quick Changeover refers to the ability to prepare an OR suite or patient room for the next procedure or patient, in the minimum time possible, without errors, and without rushing. Quick Changeover has been a core method in the world of manufacturing (it is also called SMED in that world), but the same basic approach can be applied to the changeover of an OR suite, a patient room, or any case where we need to improve asset utilization. This clear explanation of the Quick Changeover process will help your hospital get started on the right foot, with this fundamental and essential discipline.
