Sterile-Z Back Table Cover

Our Sterile-Z Back Table Cover helps medical professionals more easily prepare their operating rooms and maintain the sterile fields within them. It is specifically designed to maintain the sterile field while being applied and removed.

By using this surgical back table cover, nurses and other OR staff can quickly and efficiently protect sterile fields during procedural delays, potentially freeing up sufficient time to perform additional tasks.

Left uncovered, it can take as little as 30 minutes for opened sterile instrument trays to be contaminated in the operating room.1

Sterile-Z Surgical Back Table Cover

The Sterile-Z Surgical Back Table Cover is designed to comply with AORN’s recommendations for protecting the sterile field during double setups, pre-incision, positioning, clean closures, delays, or increased activities. This surgical back table drape can protect instruments from contamination for up to eight hours.2 The back table cover is available in a standard size as well as an extra-large size that is ideal for two-tiered tables.

To make protecting sterile fields even easier and more intuitive for nurses and OR staff, TIDI recently updated the Sterile-Z Surgical Back Table Cover in the following ways:

  • Simplified the folding to mimic standard surgical back table cover folds
  • Added blue-colored handles to simplify the removal process by illustrating proper hand placement
  • Included a QR code to offer ready access to an instructional video
