Clinical site managers: Take a short survey on disinfection, sterilization processes
Managers of all clinical sites are asked to take a brief, one-minute survey on High Level Disinfection and Sterilization processes at UMHS. Please visit the link below or assign a delegate to submit information for your area by July 2, 2015.
In the survey, you will be asked to provide contact information for a front-line staff member who is involved with and best knows the processes performed in your area. This person will receive a secondary, more detailed survey on your area’s HLD processes.
This data will help UMHS validate and update the list of areas performing reprocessing of clinical devices.
Julia Jackson is the system manager for Sterile Processing and John Whelan is the system project manager for High Level Disinfection. Working together with Infection Prevention, an institutional certification program is being developed for all sites involved in sterilization and/or HLD processes. This endeavor will serve as initial and ongoing quality control for these critical processes.
