Generosity Plants Seeds

Central Service (CS) professionals are responsible for cleaning, decontaminating, sterilizing and distributing medical and surgical instrumentation in healthcare facilities. Because of this critical role, they are among the most vital contributors to the delivery of safe, high-quality patient care. In fact, without CS professionals, the Operating Room and other patient care centers of a healthcare facility simply could not function.

Performing CS-related duties safely, consistently and in accordance with industry standards, guidelines, best practices, internal policies and procedures, and manufacturers' instructions for use requires competent, well-trained and skilled CS technicians. Not only must these professionals commit to continuing education and professional development, they must also remain focused on delivering consistent, high-quality customer service, and doing what's right in the name of patient safety- for each and every instrument, surgical case and patient.

Your support provides the foundation to help these professionals continue their education and development, through education, training and scholarships.
