“Sharon Greene-Golden was great! She put it all in perspective. You have already been dealing with all these other disease processes and this is no different in the decontamination of instruments. Great speaker,” said C. Edmonds, vascular/transplant OR coordinator.

“I try to never miss one of OR Today’s webinars, they are excellent! I truly enjoyed her webinar. The information she reviewed regarding EUAs was superb and the guidance she gave about not following the IFUs was spot on! She truly is a subject matter expert and I appreciate listening to true and honest daily challenges we face in health care when it comes to sterilization processes, etc.,” said Vice President Chief Care Continuum Officer F. Roster.
