Happy new year and welcome to 2020! As the new year (and decade) begins, we’ve decided to take a moment and reflect on the privilege it is to do what we do and the part that we play in making a difference in thousands of lives every year.
Our field almost always feels busy and full. In the day in day out routines we often find ourselves in, it’s very easy to forget that each day is an opportunity to make a difference. Sure, the medical field is a part of our profession and livelihood, but we are not just earning a paycheck in a meaningless and insignificant job role. We have been given an opportunity to make lasting and dramatic changes in the lives of people every day.
It’s our mission at Surgical Direct to provide the highest quality of cataract operational support for surgeons and OR teams so that together we can make a positive difference in the lives of your patients.
Patient Care First.
In our small corner of the medical field, we get to play an integral part in helping people regain vision. The patient is the most important person in the room. The more we keep this at the forefront of what we do every day, the more excellent our delivery of care will be. Each and every patient deserves our utmost attention to detail. At Surgical Direct, our services mean nothing if the patient doesn’t get the quality of care and professionalism that they deserve. Even though our team members do not typically interact directly with patients, we are in the room, present, and provide equipment and supplies that are integral to the success of the surgery. We take our role very seriously. Every patient deserves it.
Kindness & Respect
Part of our mission at SDI is to bring a can-do, positive attitude everywhere we go. We make it our mission to become part of the team, treating everyone with kindness and respect. Effective and efficient surgery comes when each and every team member knows their role, and respects and supports everyone else in their roles. Understanding and respecting the chain of command in an OR is important for the success of the surgery. But even further…kindness, willingness, and supportive mindsets always create a meaningful and productive atmosphere where everyone can do their job well.
Vision is a gift.
We all can easily take for granted the miracle it is to see. It truly is a beautiful gift. Every year, Surgical Direct plays a part in helping give back sight to thousands, both here in the US (through our Mobile Cataract Services) and abroad through our affiliated missions programs. And now, thanks to technology and medical advancements, more people are receiving better vision outcomes than any other time in history. We consider it an honor to play a part in providing high-quality services and equipment to your OR.
Let’s move into new levels of respect, kindness, and honor in 2020, and let’s make a difference in the lives of patients together.
