Looking a Little Flushed: The Unsung Glories of the AER
When it comes to flexible endoscopes, the most important stop along the reprocessing workflow is the Automated Endoscope Reprocessor (known as an AER). A failure or oversight here can lead to dangerous and deadly consequences to patients who undergo procedures with a contaminated device. On this final episode of our record breaking Season 17 “Power to Process”, we speak with Frank Daniels, Director of High-Level Disinfection & Sterilization for VCU Health and Beyond Clean Advisory Group member, to discuss this critical piece of equipment and what you need to know as a frontline clinical user. How do you build an AER training process that creates confident technicians and documented compliance? What should you consider when purchasing a new AER or designing a new reprocessing space? How do you ensure you don’t miss the small stuff that leads to big risk? We cover all that and more with one of the most innovative HLD leaders in the industry today. Tune in and join us as we teach you how to #FightDirty with your AERs!
