Best sterile processing managers anticipate, collaborate, stay up to date

By: OR Manager

With more than 36 years of experience in sterile processing, I have seen many changes occur, and I know what it takes to be an effective sterile processing (SP) manager. The goal of an effective SP manager is to determine where the department is now, where you want it to be, and how to get there. It is all about being prepared for change and keeping up to date. An effective SP manager does not go it alone but utilizes the expertise of staff from SP, infection control and prevention, and the operating room to collect data and ask for more resources to improve quality and patient outcomes.
