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?

Join us every week as we explore the hidden world of one of the most important aspect of safe surgical care.

Articles-On-The-Go: The Great Pity of the Sterile Processing Pizza Party: Recognition Drowned in Marinara Sauce

Ever feel like the “pizza party” is the bare minimum the hospital can do to make you feel appreciated?  You’re not alone.

In this episode of Articles-On-The-Go, Hank looks at why the pizza party has become a cliche and how we can actually make staff feel appreciated.

“So trust me when I say, this is not some kind of veiled attack against a menu choice. Instead, it’s a frontal assault against lazy leadership, uncreative administrators, and an industry in need of real celebration and recognition.”
