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.
Sterile processing procedures are important and not all equipment is reprocessed the same. Reviewing and following medical equipment manufacturer IFUs is essential to effective reprocessing.
In addition to procedures, you may want to evaluate current equipment by testing your cleaning equipment. Technology is changing rapidly, making record keeping and reporting easier than ever. Available software can keep you and your department organized all year round.
Reviewing your department's procedures and evaluating your equipment will help you get started on a successful year.
