The new year is here and we are all getting back into the swing of things after a nice holiday break. It marks a time of new goals for yourself and your company. A great way to ensure you achieve your goals this year is by beginning to review your department's current procedures and guidelines.
Cleaning procedures are important and not all equipment is reprocessed the same. Reviewing and following medical equipment manufacturer IFU's is essential to effective reprocessing.
In addition to procedures, you may want to evaluate current equipment by inspecting for cleanliness. Technology is changing rapidly, making visual inspection tools easier and more practical. Available with software, these tools can keep you organized with comprehensive record keeping for your reports.
Reviewing your department's procedures and evaluating your equipment will help you get started on a successful year.
