Do broken cultures inevitably lead to broken instruments? Does lack of trust between the Sterile Processing & Operating Room teams lead to lack of timely turnovers?

On this Season 18 "Investing in Instrument Safety," which is focused on getting our teams the time, money, and support we need to protect our surgical inventory, we sit down with Jason Pacino Operations Manager Sterile Processing at Highland Hospital, to discuss his experiences overcoming the systemic challenges of "us vs them" between SPD & OR to build a quality program that serves both teams, and ultimately the patient, well.

Tune in to hear the role frontline technicians play in this culture shift, how leaders can hardwire respect & collaboration across multiple departments, and what the tangible results of this commitment are in light of surgical instrument quality coming out of Sterile Processing. Drop your weapons for a moment and join us for a conversation on peace-making in the name of patient safety. We know you'll enjoy!
