Top 3 Risks of Hiring Improperly Trained & Vetted Sterile Processing Technicians

Sterile Processing Department Staffing is a challenge for most facilities.  The work is hard, and the pay is poor. The turnover and vacancy rates are high.  As a result, hiring managers often compromise standards because they simply need to rapidly increase productivity.   Before you fill your next opening in SPD and OR with a “warm body”, please consider this:

 

  1. Patient Safety:

    Sterile Processing Technicians can have a direct impact on Surgical Site Infection Rates.  Technicians that do not care, understand or follow established reprocessing guidelines compromise patient safety and increase the risk of Surgical Site Infections (SSI).   

  1. Regulatory Citations:

    Worried about that next Joint Commission (TJC) visit?  Common citations related to Sterile Processing Technicians include: insufficient training in sterilization and HLD, recommended protocols undermined by “shortcuts”, and lack of leadership/ oversight.

  1. Unwanted Local & National, and Social Media Attention:

    Several prominent healthcare organizations have had negative press related to sterile processing.   Reputation management is critical in this social media-driven world we live in.  

Don’t hire just a “warm body” for SPD and OR!
