The mission of Sterile Processing is not one that can be accomplished alone. We need people throughout our healthcare facilities to back us, to support us, and to help make the case for improvements throughout surgical services--especially Sterile Processing. On this episode, we talked with Melissa Morgan about the importance of Infection Prevention understanding the detailed work and the level of importance in Sterile Processing. Melissa gives an account of her journey from paramedic to nurse to Infection Preventionist and talks with us about what led her to learning about the Sterile Processing department. Infection Prevention can advocate for Sterile Processing and Melissa paints a picture of a collaborative and positive relationship that many Sterile Processing departments can use as a template for improving their connection with Infection Preventionists in your facilities. We think you'll appreciate this interview about learning how to fight dirty together!
