One may be the "loneliest number" in the lyrics of the classic rock band Three Dog Night, but zero is the number Sterile Processing professionals love to see in their departments. In particular, zero is the ultimate goal for teams seeking to reduce their hospital's Immediate Use Steam Sterilization (IUSS) rate. On this episode of the Beyond Clean podcast (with new 1 CE approval!), we sat down with Jason Pacino, CRCST, Sterile Processing Operations Manager at Highland Hospital of Rochester NY to discuss why his team focused on this metric, and how they got to that magic number as a hospital. Tune in for his modern-day success story, and ideas for how your Sterile Processing team could one day close your IUSS autoclaves for good!
