    Every Second Matters: Frontline Insights and Perspectives from a 2nd Shift SPD Leader-Sarah B. Cruz


    Two words: Shift wars. Each shift in a hospital department is riddled with interpersonal dynamics but the interplay between shifts is a topic we are finally shining a well-deserved light on. It’s something that is a reality for many healthcare professionals and on this week’s episode of Beyond Clean, we talk to 2nd shift Sterile Processing leader, Sarah B. Cruz, about her experience taking on the responsibility of the nuanced relationship between shifts. Sarah talks with us about the challenge that any sterile processing shift leader faces to keep their staff motivated and focused on department goals and provides a detailed account of informing and motivating her staff to set them up for success. If you are a new Sterile Processing shift leader you’re certainly going to want to tune in now!

    Season 7 CEs will be packaged at the end of the season in a single quiz that includes all eight episodes. The quiz will be released through our newsletter and social media pages along with episode 8 later this season.
