Is the Sterile Processing industry actually running out of people? On this episode 4 of Beyond Clean season 13, we sit down with labor statistician and economist Ron Hetrick, Director of Staffing Products and Data at Emsi to discuss his organization’s latest research & E-book entitled “Demographic Drought: How the Approaching Sansdemic Will Transform the Labor Market for the Rest of Our Lives.” Have you noticed how difficult it is to find qualified technicians to hire into your Sterile Processing department these days? Are your current technicians quitting to take higher paying traveler positions to support other facility’s critical staffing needs? Tune in to this jaw-dropping episode with Ron to hear him connect the dots between what you may be seeing in your own hospital and the larger labor shifts that are showing up in the demographic data. This topic impacts compensation, training, recruiting, retention, and culture — so no matter your role, you’re going to want to hear what the coming “sansdemic” has in store for all of us.
