As more complex procedures are shifting to ambulatory surgery centers
(ASCs), these smaller facilities are tasked with reprocessing increased volumes of surgical instruments while adhering to the same regulations and standards as larger healthcare facilities. To meet these challenges and ensure surgical instruments are properly cleaned and disinfected, ASC leaders and staff need knowledge on best practices for surgical instrument reprocessing.
Upon completion of this webinar, the healthcare practitioner should be able to:
1. Discuss the processes and practices for reusable device processing that put ambulatory clinical sites - and their patients – at risk.
2. Review the applicable best practice standards and guidelines for device processing.
3. Identify key strategies for identification and mitigation of related risks.
