As part of the requirements you have to meet for surgery center accreditation and certification, the organization must provide a functional and sanitary environment. The accrediting or certification surveyor will ask your certified surgical tech or scrub person questions pertaining to the sterilization process of the instruments and supplies. The surveyor will most likely request to view the complete process so make sure you follow the manufacturer’s recommendation when using enzyme detergent solutions to pre clean and to perform high level sterilization on surgical instruments and approved surgical devices for reprocessing. Adhere to it and include it in your policy and procedure manual.
Here’s to your success,
