Celebrating the dedicated professionals of the SPD and how their work impacts patient care.
During these challenging times, we commend those working in the Sterile Processing Department for their skill and flexibility to adjust to many tough situations that have arose. Their crucial impact to patient care should not go unnoticed. Without the pivotal work of the SPD, surgery cannot be performed, and patient care could be compromised.
For SPD professionals, we’re pleased to share resources, including a digital calendar with Julian dates to serve as a quick reference when labeling sterilized trays. We have also curated sterilization education that can be accessed including a webinar Stress in the SPD: Why does it happen and how can we manage it.
