More than 65 professionals of the SVS Hospital Francesc Borja of Gandía, participated in an online training on ” Guidelines for the correct reprocessing of health care devices external to the RUMED”. The training, divided into three sessions (11 May, 18 May and 8 June), focused on the cleaning and disinfection of medical devices that are used with outpatients and begin their reprocessing at the point of use and therefore external to the RUMED. This is the case with material from gynaecology, urology, emergency, ophthalmology and materials from primary care centres.
During the three days, basic concepts of cleaning and disinfection were reviewed, which helped professionals to better understand the importance of these actions to prevent the formation of biofilms and facilitate the development of subsequent processes carried out in the RUMED. As a result of all this, the hospital has carried out a review of all its protocols to standardise its practices in all these areas.
From MATACHANA, we would like to thank Mrs. Mª Carmen Sanchís, sterilization supervisor of H. Francesc Borja, for the organization of the conference and her commitment to training and continuous improvement of all activities related to reprocessing. And of course, to the staff of the Francesc Borja Hospital… Thank you so much for your interest!
