Hospitals have a commitment to patient safety - by providing the safest and best quality care to patients. In most healthcare facilities, the Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD) plays a critical role in providing the items required to deliver quality patient care. To support infection control within the healthcare facility, the CSSD staff members must be well-trained, competent and committed to "doing what's right" every step of the way. This means ensuring that shortcuts are not taken and that processes and practices are consistently followed. The consistent provision of quality disinfection and sterilization services can be a monumental task; however, it is a vital link in providing safer healthcare.
To pursue these objectives CAHO and 3M invites you to participate in the CSSD Awards that recognize the excellence in CSSD Practices
