Beyond Clean

Even though their tools and equipment touch nearly every surgical patient in the world, how much do you really know about the people, processes, and products used in the Sterile Processing industry? The Beyond Clean podcast offers a creative look into the inner workings of a healthcare industry surrounded by challenges, disrupted by change, and committed to getting it right — every instrument, every time. The team at Beyond Clean will bring on some of the biggest names in surgical instrument reprocessing and provide commentary on the biggest issues facing Sterile Processing professionals, facilities, administrators, manufacturers, and vendors. Join us every week as we explore the hidden world of one of the most important aspect of safe surgical care.

The Ins & Outs: Critical Insights for Tracking Clinic Instruments

If you want to elicit groans and frustrated head shaking from a crowd of Sterile Processing professionals, mention the word: Clinics. With healthcare and procedure-based services increasingly growing outside of the OR environment, reprocessing support of clinics has become a major source of challenge among departments across the US. On this episode 7 of Season 16 “Yes, We Scan!”, we sit down with Angela Benson, Sterile Processing Education Specialist at UW Health in Madison, WI and Beyond Clean Advisory Group member, to talk about why clinic reprocessing is such a complex issue, and dive into best practices to get it under control. Tune in for Angela’s perspective on what works, what doesn’t, and how to leverage your tracking system to hardwire transparency and quality for your clinic customers. If your SPD supports internal or external clinics, this is one interview you will not want to miss!   Season 16 episodes are individually approved for 1 CE, so once you finish this interview, you can download your CE certificate immediately by passing the short quiz linked below each week.   For access to this CE quiz and over 250 other free CE credits, visit our CE Credit Hub: https://educate.beyondclean.net/3ksVnOw     #BeyondClean #SterileProcessing #Podcast #CE #YesWeScan #InstrumentTracking #Season16
