Here’s Your Sign: The Power and Purpose of Visual Aids in Your CS/SPD Workflow

In this CE-approved episode of Articles On-The-Go, Hank Balch explains how thoughtful signage and labeling can significantly improve workflows, efficiency, and standardization in SPDs: “While new employee orientation may only last 90 days, learning should last a lifetime, especially when it comes to the technical aspects of the sterile processing profession.

The Roles that Make Us Great: VPs of Sterile Processing

It’s not the highest you can go in healthcare leadership, but it’s definitely the pinnacle of the Sterile Processing career ladder. We wrap up this record-breaking Season 23 “The Roles that Make Us Great” with our episode dedicated to Vice Presidents & AVPs in Sterile Processing! Join Hank Balch & Bobby Parker as they discuss why SPD technicians and every other member of the department should care who their VP is and what they do, even if you’ve never met them. If your VP doesn’t understand Sterile Processing’s impact and needs, resources and attention may be directed elsewhere, hindering your department’s growth, surgical efficiency, and even OR revenue. This episode offers tips for getting your SPD team on the radar of VPs, such as requesting meetings, participating in hospital-wide safety/quality initiatives, and building relationships with key support staff. We also discuss pathways for Sterile Processing professionals interested in someday moving into a VP or other administrative role themselves!

Hear Ye, Hear Me! On Education and Competition in Sterile Processing
