  • Assure continuous maintenance and proper sterilization practices of processed items across multiple facility departments (i.e., OR, ER)
  • Understand the complete lifecycle of sterilization processing—from managing temperature and humidity to processes for the decontamination area

  • Stay in compliance with the latest industry standards and regulatory bodies like The Joint Commission
  • Support the delivery of properly processed medical devices critical to optimizing patients’ health
  • Guide personnel toward desirable performance objectives

The new ST79 is easier to reference as it’s been reorganized into topical groupings and provides the flexibility for facilities to determine certain criteria based on their concerns.
