According to the CDC, the steri-center should be centrally located and physically or spatially separated into four distinct areas that include: receiving/cleaning/decontamination, preparing/packaging, sterilization, and sterile storage.
Automated systems in the steri-center can now free up team members to perform other responsibilities, reducing labor costs and increasing efficiency.
You don't need the most expensive, advanced equipment to have a steri-center design that promotes safe practices, allows for growth and incorporates automation.
Although your steri-center might not seem very exciting, the reality is that it has a real impact on your practice. A well thought-out steri-center allows for better allocation of time and resources, which can increase productivity, and in turn translate to dollars saved.
Since your steri-center truly is the heart of your practice, not only should you be excited about its design, but so should your current, prospective and new patients.
This eBook describes how automated, hands-free systems can help you achieve a sterile, safe steri-center that ensures compliance with state and federal requirements, no longer making instrument processing a primary focus of your team members.
