Pure Processing Offers Webinar on Pre-Cleaning


Pure Processing, LLC, an innovator focused on highly effective and ergonomic pre-cleaning technologies and accessories, is sponsoring a webinar titled, “Manual Pre-Cleaning …It All Starts Here,” presented by Rose E. Seavey MBA, RN, BS, CNOR, CRCST, CSPDT. The one-hour course will be presented twice on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 11 a.m. CT and again at 1:30 p.m. CT.

"Pre-cleaning practices are our company’s primary innovation focus,” says Dan Gusanders, president of Pure Processing, LLC. “We understand the importance of this initial device reprocessing step and want to help expand the knowledge base of sterile processing professionals in meaningful ways. For this reason, supporting high-quality continuing education by recognized leaders such as Rose Seavey makes good sense.”

This free webinar will explore the "new frontier" of decontamination. By knowing and applying current evidence-based published standards, reprocessing professionals can help settle territorial disputes and make the healthcare ‘homestead’ safer. Seavey will discuss the care and handling of contaminated reusable medical devices from the point of use through the entire decontamination process, including the importance of following instructions for use (IFU) and routinely monitoring cleaning processes.

Those who complete the course will be able to:
- Discuss the care and handling of reusable devices at the point of use, and transportation to the decontamination area
- Describe the importance of following manufacturers’ instructions for use (IFU) for the devices, equipment and cleaning solutions
- Identify the need to routinely monitor the cleaning processes used at the facility
- Explain appropriate decontamination processes and procedures for the various types of medical devices, including endoscopes, and special considerations relating to TASS and CJD
