Mitigating risks of processing reusable medical devices in ambulatory care settings
Wednesday, September 16th, 2020 | 1:00 - 2:00 PM CT
Reusable device processing in ambulatory care often occurs at a local level and is commonly overseen by non-clinical managers. Current best practice standards and guidelines for device processing apply the same to ambulatory care as they do for acute care settings.
This presentation will review common risk scenarios for device processing in ambulatory care and provide targeted steps clinicians can use to identify and mitigate related risks.
- Discuss the processes and practices for reusable device processing that put ambulatory clinical sites — and their patients — at risk.
- Review the applicable best practice standards and guidelines for device processing.
- Identify key strategies for identification and mitigation of related risks.
