Educational Products - Rick Schultz

Developing education in the industry is a huge passion at Surgical Holdings. We're proud to Distribute 'The World of Surgical Instruments' and now the supporting 'Instrument Coaching Cards' - both from Rick Schultz. 

They are by far the stand out educational materials for Surgical Instruments currently available:

  • Excellent Imagery
  • Technical Advice
  • Maintenance Tips
  • Nomenclature Coaching

Rick's book could be used as an amazing resource for Sterile Services Technician or Theatre Clinician starting out, or somebody who may have been involved in the industry for years, who wants one resource that will refresh their memory or pass on information to others.

Rick explains...What will readers find in the book?

Readers will find the book divided into a variety of easily referenceable tabbed sections, which include material a reader won’t find in other textbooks.

Each section begins with Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), which provide a simplified way to learn the material. There are 1,198 high-resolution photographs with picture-in-picture detail to see visual inspection points and common damage to surgical instruments. And a “How to Measure” section will allow the reader to improve count sheet accuracy.

There is also a complete chapter on surgical instrument repair. The material includes specific questions to ask a potential vendor when sending out a Request for Proposal (RFP), as well as education on what to look for when conducting a repair evaluation.
