A core foundation of every Sterile Processing Department (SPD) is the ability to keep patients safe and that starts with an efficient and effective SPD. When the stakes are high, the success of an operating room increases with cross-departmental collaboration in Sterile Processing.
We aim to build a more collaborative relationship between the SPD and the operating room through education and insight from both perspectives. Understanding the cause and effect of when issues arise helps each department realize how vital each team member’s role is in the surgical process. Through building teamwork, communication, and education, we can help your Sterile Processing Department become more efficient and meet the ultimate goal of providing safe patient care.
