Seminar block 3 "Recognizing surface changes - causes and prevention".
Target group: Employees and managers from AEMP, CSSD, building services and hygiene officers.
Seminar objective: The focus of this seminar part is on avoiding daily risks and cost drivers as well as ensuring patient protection by recognizing surface changes, their causes and integrating suitable preventive measures.
Medical devices are subject to countless external influences during their life cycle, from procurement to replacement, which inevitably have negative effects. These range from visually unsightly to the unusability of the medical device.
In practice, it has been proven that only a holistic approach and analysis of the sterile processing chain can provide the necessary solutions to eliminate destructive influences on medical devices.
In this seminar block 3, you will learn from our speaker Ralf Kurzrock in a differentiated manner where exactly the causes for surface changes on medical devices are based. In joint group work, you will identify changes and develop possible solutions that lead to increased patient and user safety.
