Use of Equipment and instruments

SCSSC equipment and instruments

SCSSC has a wide variety of medical and surgical equipment and instruments available to users. This is included in the facility hire charge. Please contact SCSSC for more information.

All SCSSC equipment and instruments are tested regularly during our programs. SCSSC does not guarantee compatibility with outside equipment and instruments.

 

Outside equipment and instruments

Program organisers and sponsors are encouraged to bring their own equipment and instruments to their programs; however, we cannot guarantee that outside equipment and instruments will work with SCSSC equipment and environment. It is therefore crucial that organisers/ sponsors set-up and test their equipment on the business day before their program. We will work with you to find a suitable time for this.

To ensure that no outside equipment or instruments are damaged or lost, the organisers/ sponsors are responsible for collecting, organising, cleaning and packing their own equipment and instruments at the end of the program. Organisers/ sponsors will be given priority access to the SCSSC hot washer to assist with this process. If organisers/ sponsors do not complete these tasks, thereby requiring SCSSC staff to perform them, a penalty fee of up to $500.00 per SCSSC staff member per day may be applied.

 

Sterilisation

SCSSC will apply a flat $200.00 sterilisation fee to any program that uses cadaveric tissue.

This fee includes sterilisation of outside instruments; however, organisers/ sponsors must first collect, organise and hotwash their instruments in preparation for sterilising (see above). SCSSC can then sterilise those instruments on the next business day.


Collection of outside equipment and instruments

Organisers and sponsors are responsible for packing their own equipment and instruments for shipment and for organising pick-up of these items, including labelling of boxes, completing consignment documentation, and organising courier collection.

SCSSC staff will offer all reasonable assistance but are not responsible for supporting outside equipment and instruments but  is not responsible for loss or damage.


Cancellation of programs

Once program dates have been confirmed and a quote has been issued, SCSSC is authorised to book services and purchase equipment, consumables, etc. for that program.

Cancellation/ rescheduling eight or more calendar days prior to the scheduled date

If a confirmed, quoted program is cancelled by the organiser eight or more days prior to the scheduled date, SCSSC will invoice the organiser for any non-refundable costs incurred.

If a confirmed, quoted program is rescheduled by the organiser eight or more days prior to the scheduled date, the Centre will invoice the organiser for any non-refundable costs and replacement costs incurred for items that cannot be used on the rescheduled date (e.g., items that expire before the rescheduled date; fees charged by other service providers). SCSSC will make a good-faith effort to apply all purchased equipment, consumables and services to the new date.

Cancellation/ rescheduling seven or fewer calendar days prior to the scheduled date

If a confirmed, quoted program is cancelled seven or fewer days prior to the scheduled date, SCSSC will invoice the organiser for any non-refundable costs incurred plus 50% of the quoted facility hire and staffing fees.

If a confirmed, quoted program is rescheduled seven or fewer days prior to the scheduled date, SCSSC will invoice the organiser for any non-refundable costs and replacement costs incurred for items that cannot be used on the rescheduled date (e.g., items that expire before the rescheduled date; fees charged by other service providers) plus 25% of the quoted facility hire and staffing fees. SCSSC will make a good-faith effort to apply all purchased equipment, consumables and services to the new date.

Repeated rescheduing and cancellation

If an organiser reschedules or cancels confirmed, quoted programs two or more times within a 12-month period, a non-refundable deposit may be required for future bookings.
