IAHCSMM Offers New Video to Promote CSSDs


Before a surgeon can make that initial incision, a team of skilled central sterile supply department (CSSD) professionals has worked diligently to ensure that each and every instrument is properly decontaminated, sterilized, well-functioning, and available when needed, according to the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Materiel Management (IAHCSMM).

The critical role CSSD plays in the delivery of safe, top-quality patient care is the theme of IAHCSMMs new video, "Central Sterile Supply Department: It All Starts Here." A follow-up to IAHCSMMs first video, "Central Service: Instrumental to Patient Care," which debuted in 2005, this new release offers an eye-opening glimpse into the exciting, fast-paced and critically important -- world of CSSD.
