    The Need for Sterile Processing Speed - 4 Clutch Concepts for Increasing Your Prep/Pack Assembly Time

    The Need for Sterile Processing Speed - 4 Clutch Concepts for Increasing Your Prep/Pack Assembly Time

    On this CE approved release of Articles On-The-Go, tune in for insights on how to safely increase the speed of your Sterile Processing team: "If you are able to connect pictures with individual instruments in your tracking system, this can be a huge boost to speedy identification of items during the assembly stage. In addition to pictures, make sure you list the specific instrument manufacturer and catalog number of each instrument on the count sheet for easy verification by your techs. If your tracking system allows you to list multiple substitution information or cross-referencing, do that as well. Any info that can answer a question before it has to be asked can shave critical minutes off of processing times that would otherwise be spent trying to answer questions like, "Is this the exact Debakey forcep they want in this set?..."

    If there were one area of your department where it constantly looked like a bomb went off, where would it be? Chances are good your backup inventory storage area might top that list. In addition to being a major source of headache and frustration for your team, poorly managed backup inventory data can dramatically reduce assembly times and completion rates for your surgical trays. On this final episode 8 of Season 16 "Yes, We Scan!", we sit down with Bobby Parker, 2016 HPN SPD Department of the Year winner and Clinical Manager at Beyond Clean, to talk about his experience managing the explosive potential of instrument extras.

    Articles On-The-Go: One Book to Rule Them All - 5 Creative Ways to Read the AAMI Standards & Not Get Bored

    Articles On-The-Go: One Book to Rule Them All - 5 Creative Ways to Read the AAMI Standards & Not Get Bored

    On this CE approved release of Articles On-The-Go, tune in for creative encouragement to read your copy of AAMI ST79: "You've heard it said that it takes a village to raise a child. I would argue that it takes a village to read the standards. Not only was ST79 crafted by a diverse group of Sterile Processing and healthcare leaders across the country, but that's also the best way to read it!

Approaching the standards in this way would allow for the kind of community interpretation that they were meant to have, and it will give outlet to the stories, tips, and testimonials that we all bring to the table through our individual years of Sterile Processing experience..."
