The Wide World of Wrap: Working in a Sea of Blue Polyproplene

What’s blue and has flaps? A bluebird. What’s blue and can be folded? Blue jeans! What’s blue and can save lives? Now THAT’s a good question. Join us for this episode of Season 22, featuring Sterile Processing Educator and member of the Beyond Clean Advisory Group Sean Weir, as he joins us to discuss the iconic blue wrap – a polyproplene material used to package surgical instruments all around the world. Sean shares his best tips on proper wrapping technique, common mistakes to avoid when using this consumable, and weighs in on innovations currently in the market. He also touts a record wrapping time of 5.65 seconds, that he is still seeking a challenge to!  Sean’s passion for education and advancing the Sterile Processing field shines through in this engaging conversation around a well-known, yet sometimes overlooked single-use supply in our department. We hope you can tune in!
