IAHCSMM would like to take a moment to thank every Sterile Processing professional for the heart and soul you put into your work each day.
With your tireless dedication, your healthcare customers can count on clean and sterile instruments that are used on patients. With your ongoing due diligence and dependable equipment and process monitoring, surgeries can be performed without delay. With your unwavering adherence to industry standards, best practices, and policies and procedures, patient safety is never sacrificed. All of this is because of you.
Sterile Processing Week (formerly named ‘International Central Service Week’) recognizes the committed specialists that fill Sterile Processing departments and make a difference in patient care. Held annually, Sterile Processing Week starts with the second Sunday in October. IAHCSMM celebrates these dedicated professionals for all their outstanding achievements – not just this week, but year-round! It is our hope that International Sterile Processing Week brings the appreciation and respect so greatly deserved. IAHCSMM recognizes you as an essential contributor to patient safety and quality service.
