Next, Mrs. Mercedes Garcia Haro, supervisor of the Central Sterilization Unit of the Ramón y Cajal University Hospital in Madrid, gave an attractive presentation on "Assembly and preparation: Those great aspects forgotten in sterilization", with very useful contents. Dr. Juan José Criado Álvarez, professor at the University of Castilla la Mancha and Vice President of CEDEST, spoke to us about the role of Preventive Medicine in sterilization units. And finally, Dr. Empar Carbonell Franco from the Arnau de Vilanova Hospital in Valencia, commented on the results of the online survey on the status of sterilization plants in Spain carried out by the G3E Group.
