Under the Spotlight: Is Your Facility Prepared for a
Sterile Processing Accreditation Survey?

January 10, 2012: 10:00 am - 11:00 pm CST

Accreditation is a means of peer review by professionals and is a universally accepted means of enhancing the quality of health care. Reprocessing of reusable medical devices and sterile processing (SP) areas are becoming an increasingly larger focus of accreditation survey processes.

SP areas differ in their physical design, location, equipment, and in the level of personnel expertise, competence and training. This webinar will explore the Joint Commission, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and other accrediting organizations’ requirements related to SP in any setting such as sterile processing departments, operating rooms, GI labs, ambulatory surgery centers, office-based procedure areas, and dental clinics.  We will focus specifically on SP standards and evidence-based guidelines, survey preparation and risk-reduction tools.  We will share how the audience can get access to a valuable “Sterile Processing Best Practices Audit Tool” to help them prepare and maintain readiness for an accreditation survey.
