Sterilization and High-Level Disinfection Clinical Services

From our mock surveys at client hospitals and our work on sterilization and high-level disinfection (SHLD) at other hospitals, we have knowledge of how unprepared hospitals are for a rigorous review of their SHLD practices. Often, inpatient areas outside the main OR and sterilization processing department (SPD), clinics, and other outpatient areas process items using steam sterilization or high-level disinfection that may not meet industry standards. Competency assessment programs may be inconsistent, and quality control processes may fail to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

We also know what needs to be in place and how to help hospitals chart a course toward compliance. We can help client hospitals develop policies, guidelines, and tools to achieve a safe and regulatory-compliant hospital SHLD program. We also know that implementation is easier said than done, which is why we offer on-site training and implementation guidance to ensure that the hospital can build and sustain a compliant SHLD program. Furthermore, we can help validate implementation through mock surveys and sterilization and high-level disinfection assessments for status of Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) readiness activities with recommendations for improvement.
