Procedure Kit/Trays, Skin Preparation

Definition : Prepackaged collections of the devices and supplies (either custom or standard) needed for preparing the skin/area where a surgical procedure will be performed (e.g., open surgery sites, permanent catheter insertion). Items in these kits usually include supplies for shaving, cleansing and/or making the surgical site sterile. These kits may be supplied in supporting trays (i.e., procedure trays) consisting of a flat-bottomed receptacle with a border around the periphery supporting all the instruments and supplies needed for the procedure; the trays are usually covered or wrapped. Skin preparation procedure kits and trays are intended to reduce the number of microorganisms in the field of operation and prevent infection.
