This year, from October 9-15th, hospitals nationwide will be celebrating National Healthcare Central Service and Sterile Processing Week. The Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD) of a health care facility is the center of all activities related to surgical instruments, supplies and equipment needed for surgery, obstetrics and other patient care areas.
Central service technicians are responsible for properly maintaining surgical instruments, sterilizing and packaging instruments used during a surgery, as well as decontaminating, cleaning and storing the surgical instruments after each procedure. CSSD professionals play a crucial role in patient care by preventing infections through their knowledge in surgical instrument preparation and care.
If you know someone working in the Central Service Department of a health care facility, take the week of October 9th as an opportunity to recognize their devotion and commitment to making a difference in patient care.
At Spectrum, we appreciate all the CSSD professionals we work with and are proud to supply them with the best surgical instruments and surgical instrument care education. Contact Spectrum with your surgical instrument needs and for more surgical instrument information.
