Meet the Team – Dai Gale

When I asked Dai to be part of Meet The Team Monday I knew it was going to be epic. So many mysteries to unravel. Why do we call you Dai when your name is Peter, what does being Deputy Warehouse Manager involve, and why did I see a picture on Facebook of you wearing your wife’s best dress?

Dai is a bit special here at Single Use Surgical, because while most of the team have been staying safe at the comfort of our dining tables, Dai has been working full time in the warehouse to ensure our customers still get their orders. So, we decided Dai needed a special place on our blog, as just a small thank you for his hard work.

Benefits of single-use instruments – Part 1

Hospitals around the world are recognising the benefits of switching to single-use, but why?

Simply put, switching to single-use devices and surgical instruments reduces the risk of patient-to-patient cross-contamination as well as saving the time and cost involved in reprocessing.

The Legacy of CJD on Surgical Instruments

One of the biggest public health scare crises of the 1990s in the UK revolved around ‘Mad Cow Disease’. Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) is a neurodegenerative disease of cattle, which when to spread to humans is believed to result in variant Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease (sometimes abbreviated to CJD or vCJD), a rare and degenerative fatal brain disorder. Away from obvious concerns relating to the food chain and agricultural practices (and the subsequent change to regulations and industrial practices in those sectors), the BSE and CJD crises had a major impact in another area: surgical procedures.
