The Real Dirty Data: Spotlight on Decontamination Scanning

The decontamination area of Sterile Processing has a lot of nicknames: “Big D”, “Decon”, “The Wall”, “The Hole,” “The Dirty Side.” Whatever your team calls it, one common theme seems to come up again and again — this area is often filled with systemic scanning challenges. On this Episode 2 of Season 16 “Yes, We Scan!”, we sit down with Michelle Sirex, Beyond Clean Advisory Group member and Education Specialist at Overlake Medical Center to chat about why scanning compliance is so problematic in decontamination. Tune in for Michelle’s thoughts on the potential data gaps during the decontamination phase of reprocessing, and why these missing data points can be a big deal for your team. We hope you can join us!
