The OR Today Webinar Series continues to deliver valuable insights. “Getting the Most Out of Your Reusable Medical Devices” presented by Kevin Anderson, BSN, RN, CNOR, CSSM, CRCST, CHL, CIS, CER, was a hit with attendees. It was also eligible for one (1) continuing (CE) hour by the State of California Board of Registered Nursing. Eligible for 1 credit for IAHCSMM and CBSPD.

Health care professionals who work with surgical instruments know that much of their success depends on the ability to understand and handle surgical instruments. The main purpose of this webinar was to simplify the process of learning about surgical instruments and the issues that commonly occur with them. It addressed costs and the importance of proper care and handling of common reusable medical devices like stainless steel, laparoscopic instruments as well as flexible and rigid endoscopes. Anderson also discussed how the role each professional fills in the surgical services departments can better impact reusable medical device assets.

More than 200 people registered for the webinar. Attendees provided feedback via a post-webinar survey that included testimonials for the OR Today webinar series.

“The presenter was very clear, straight to the point, and used real situations/scenarios that occur in an SPD department,” shared J. Serrano, CRCST, CER and CIS.
