This week on Beyond Clean we speak with Michael Matthews, Manager of Central Sterile at Baptist Health in Arkansas. Mike is a rising star in the Sterile Processing industry, who has taken a particular interest in regards to compensation and education requirements for front-line technicians. Michael offers his insight into how managers can determine the value of a high quality technician and making the most of a role in sterile processing and opening new opportunities while climbing the career ladder. The main topic of conversation surrounds how to effectively partner with Infection Control to meet the needs of the institution and increase awareness of the important challenges facing departments across the country. We hope you will enjoy our inaugural episode of Beyond Clean!
