"I just wanted to say that I have been a surgical tech for eight years. At the most recent facility I was working at, they needed someone to do Central Sterile. I’ve always been on the OR side of things, but I had never really been in a Central Sterile department full time. I was a fish out of water, but I learned and grew in Central. I NEVER realized everything you guys did! I never knew the stress, the OR breathing down your neck. I never realized the hard work and dedication that goes into what you guys do. It was an eye-opening experience. I wanted to tell you all how amazing you are. Thank you all for your incredible work. You guys are seriously awesome!"
