MIEC REACHES TURKMENISTAN:
A training course was held on 18th and 19th April for the sterilization staff of the two most important hospitals in the capital of Turkmenistan, Ashgabat: Endocrinology Hospital and Surgery Hospital.
MATACHANA, as the awarded company for the contract on the equipment project of these two new Centers, conducted an intensive 16-hours course, directed by Elena Lorenzo, Infection Control Manager and Mr. Ahmed Menekbi, Sales Manager North Africa & Middle East. This way, keeping on with its constant commitment to training.
The seminar was divided into a theoretical and practical part, where fundamental aspects of the global circle of Reprocessing of Medical Devices were emphasized, highlighting the crucial role of these professionals as guarantors of patient safety.
The first day was dedicated to discussions on theoretical topics, standardization of terminology and especially, great importance was given to the cleaning and disinfection stage, based on any aseptic process.
On the second day, the useful explanations of all the installed equipment were given per area, integrating them into the different reprocessing solutions that the hospital has for its medical equipment. Details regarding process and staff safety, as well as improved production and material rotation were addressed, so that the two RUMED are both highly secure and efficient at the same time. It was a most appropriate time to resolve technical questions about equipment and more general reprocessing issues.
Here is the list of MATACHANA equipment installed in each center: 3 MAT 521XLS washers, an ergonomic washing station with irrigation system for cannulates, a flexible endoscopy reprocessor, a storage and drying cabin for endoscopes, 3 steam sterilizers model S1012 of 892 liters, 3 LTSF sterilizers model 130LF with double door, 2 units of H2O2, model 130HPO® with double door, including all the complementary furniture and accessories to ensure the correct and smooth work in a RUMED of these characteristics.
This project could not have been carried out without the collaboration and involvement of the local MATACHANA distributor, the company MED CONCEPT. The hospital complex in Ashgabat is the most important RUMED in Turkmenistan and one of the major references in Central Asia. We hope that all the efforts made by the different parties are up to the expectations generated, enabling MATACHANA to contribute in the quality improvement of health services in this country.
We would also like to thank the personnel of the center for their interest, perseverance and patience during the sessions, that was translated in real time from English into Russian and Turkmen. Thank you very much once more for your courtesy!
