MIEC FROM THE BASELINE: VISIT OF THE INSTITUTO SALES OF VILADECANS (COLLEGE), BARCELONA:
Last March 11 we received a large group visit of around 100 students belonging to four courses of the professional module of
Técnicos en Curas Auxiliares de Enfermería (TCAEs) (Auxiliary Nursing Technicians) from the Instituto de Sales of Viladecans (college).
The visit was part of the activities to support the educational work that the Center offers each year, and was included within one of the credits for Hygiene and Cleaning of medical instruments.
The visit was organized in 2 groups, where attendees could learn about the history of our company, observe how a steam sterilizer is manufactured or go into a RUMED to understand much better how a sterilizer operates, a washer-disinfector, ultrasonic tanks, as well as the design and circuits so specific that are observed within these units.
Finally, the students were able to walk through our sterilization museum where they contemplated devices from all periods, so as to appraise the progress of science, medicine and also, technology applied to Sterilization Sciences.
The visit ended with a talk on basic principles of asepsis, which purpose was to reinforce, from a practical point of view, the knowledge that these future RUMED professionals acquire in their colleges.
Thank you very much to all the students and the team of teachers who accompanied us during that day. Hopefully we have awakened your interest in sterilization!
