SPD Accreditation Surveys: Are you at Ready? (1.5 hr)
Healthcare accreditation processes are conducted with a focus on safety and quality of patient care. Sterile processing in health care facilities has become an increasingly larger focus of the accreditation survey process.
This presentation is intended to help health care professionals prepare for a Joint Commission (TJC), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), or other accrediting agency survey as it relates to sterile processing of surgical instruments and other medical devices in health care settings.

The Wild, Wild West of SPD! (1 hr)
The Sterile Processing (SP) areas differ in their physical design, location, equipment, and in the level of personnel expertise, competence and training. Many sterile processing activities occur in areas separate from the location where terminal sterilization is actually carried out. There are no real industry-wide standards and no real way to enforce compliance. In some instances, it is like the wild, wild west uncontrolled, and untamed. The changing landscape in todays healthcare environment will demand healthcare providers abide by a new set of territorial laws (a.k.a standards and recommended practices). The old gunslinger way of doing things and statements like this is how we do it in My Town or this is how we have always done here in River City wont cut it anymore.
This presentation will explore the new frontier of sterile processing in any setting; sterile processing departments, operating rooms, GI labs, ambulatory surgery centers, office-based, and dental clinics, helping to shed light on the territorial disputes. The need for strong leadership and new regulatory requirements will be addressed.
