This is no doubt a challenging time: patient caseloads are surging and “readiness” has taken on a whole new meaning. Ever-changing accreditation surveys will measure competencies in areas new to all of us, from recycling products to evidence-based, written instructions for changes implemented during the pandemic.
OSPECS Consulting is staying on top of it all and can help you and your team prepare for eventual surveys and audits before the surveyors come knocking. Our whole-system, step-by-step Sterile Processing Program can help you revamp functional areas of operations, improve overall processes, establish best practices, and enhance employee skills and competencies while increasing customer and employee satisfaction and hitting the mark on any surveys that may come your way.
