A Perfect Pass: Clarifying the Confusing World of PCD Documentation in Sterile Processing
One of the most common “gotcha moments” for accreditation surveyors happens when they open up your department documentation around process challenge devices (PCDs) and biological indicators (BIs). Even though we all know this, fixing a broken process in the sterilization area can be a real challenge for both leaders and technicians. On this episode 5 of Beyond Clean season 13, we sit down with Jake McHugh,CRCST, CIS, CHL, CER, Instrument Tracking Coordinator at a hospital in Jacksonville, FL to discuss his approach to hardwiring compliance around PCD documentation. Tune in to hear Jake walk us through the basics of building communication, confidence, and checklists into your department workflow to improve the process and grow technicians into PCD perfectionists!
