Behind the Steel Door: Inside Your Steam Sterilizer

It has one of the biggest footprints in our entire department, uses some of the most utilities, and stands as the final step in a surgical instrument’s journey to a sterility assurance level (SAL) of 10−6: the powerhouse of Sterile Processing, the steam autoclave. So, how much do you know about what goes on behind the steel door of your department’s steam sterilizer? On this Season 17 premiere of “The Power to Process”, focused on the equipment that keeps our departments processing, we sit down with Shane Pinkston, Commercial Operations Manager Surgical Workflows at Getinge, to dive into this workhorse of reprocessing, and highlight important considerations about the technology that every frontline SPD professional should know. Tune in for Shane’s thoughts on everything from successful sterilizer installations to effective user education and more!
