In this 60-minute webinar, join experts Jamie Zarembinski, SPD Clinical Educator, and Michelle Lemmons, OR Clinical Educator, as they review the 2021 AAMI and AORN updated guidelines surrounding best practices for the care, evaluation, and protection of electrosurgical instruments. The discussion will detail some of the changes that were made, why they are significant, and how they impact the daily practice of sterile processing and perioperative professionals. Further, they will talk through the consequences of a reactive approach to instrument care vs a proactive approach; stay ready so you don’t have to get ready.
