What: A fun and fast-paced competition designed to test the wrapping skills and speed of CS professionals using SMART-FOLD* Sterilization Wrap, an innovative sterilization packaging designed with the toughest tasks in mind, engineered to protect heavy trays and loaner sets from tears and cuts in handling.
- CS professionals interested in competing in the SMART-FOLD* Wrap Race should contact their Halyard Health representative, who will visit participants’ facilities to videotape their fastest SMART-FOLD* wrapping times.
- The fastest wrappers will advance in the competition for an opportunity to be crowned the 2015 SMART-FOLD* Wrap Race Champion at the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management (IAHCSMM) 2015 Annual Conference and Expo, May 3-6, 2015.
When: Enter today through January 30, 2015 to see if you have what it takes to be the fastest in the industry!
