The Prerequisites for Quality: Safe Surgery Starts Here

The big parts of instrument safety are kind of obvious. Buy high quality instruments. Treat them well. Thoroughly inspect every time. But what about the million other small things that need to happen to make these big things even possible? What are those critical prerequisites for instrument quality that must occur in our departments to enable our Sterile Processing teams to accomplish our mission for safe surgical care? On this Season 18 “Investing in Instrument Safety,” which is focused on getting our teams the time, money, and support we need to protect our surgical inventory, we sit down with Garrett Hollembeak, SPD & Distribution Manager at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital to chat about how his philosophy of bees impacts his approach to this complex topic. Tune in for this interesting conversation that blends nature’s wisdom with frontline clinical insight that can help your team fight dirty better!
