Webinar: ST90: Quality Management Systems for Sterile Processing
March 6, 2018
AAMI's new standard, ANSI/AAMI ST90, Processing of health care products-Quality management systems for reprocessing in health care facilities, provides the necessary framework for a quality management system for sterile processing departments. A quality management system requires an organization to evaluate its activities, understand the interactions of these procedures, and evaluate the impact that quality or lack of quality has on overall patient safety. And as an added benefit, departments outside of sterile processing will be required to comply with quality system requirements when interacting with sterile processing, helping to eliminate some of the problems sterile processing departments face within their own facilities.
