The chemicals used to sterilize medical devices are near-odorless and are designed to kill all life. Front line sterilization technicians have every reason to question why hazardous chemicals are not monitored in their department. In this episode of the Beyond Clean podcast we talk with David Hilliker, a champion of worker safety in the healthcare industry about why it’s important to care about the potential for chemical exposure. He talks with Justin Poulin and Bob Marrs about the roles government agencies play, why there isn’t more rigorous testing and he also compares the most popular chemicals used in Sterile Processing departments today. Especially with the unprecedented use of sterilants used on PPE during this COVID-19 pandemic, this is an interview you’re not going to want to miss. Tune in now!
Season 8 CEs will be packaged in a single quiz at the end of the season that will include all eight episodes.
