There is one theme that shows up in nearly EVERY surgical instrument quality breakdown headline to come out in recent years. That reoccurring theme is a lack of point-of-use cleaning in the OR and the many implications this oversight has on a Sterile Processing team’s ability to #FightDirty with any success. For the first episode of Season 3, we bring on Lisa Wakeman, Sterile Processing Education and Quality Coordinator for the Indianapolis Suburban Region of IU Health Network, to discuss point-of-use cleaning, perioperative collaboration, and the upcoming IU Health Perioperative Symposium: Collaborative Approach to Reducing HAIs (Saturday, February 23, 2019, 8:00 AM – 5:15 PM, NCAA, Indianapolis, IN).
- Register For The Symposium
- Read Lisa’s Position Statement On Point Of Use
- Complete The Exam For CE Credit!
Join us next week when we will speak with Dr. Christine Greene, Principal Investigator for Sanitation and Contamination Control at NSF International, Applied Research Center about ATP Testing and Collaborating for Clean. #beyondclean
