Published: April 17, 2018

Have you ever had to cancel a case due to a lack of instruments or supplies? Tell us in this week's InstaPoll.

If you count instruments both before and at the end of the case, you're like 93% of last week's 340 poll respondents.

When do you count instruments?

  • all surgeries 43%
  • laparoscopic surgeries 2%
  • open abdominal surgeries 50%
  • never 5%
