Central Service professionals were celebrated for their commitment to patient safety during International Central Service Week, October 13 – 19, 2019. The International Association of Healthcare Central Service Material Management (IAHCSMM) has served more than 27,000 Central Service professionals in the U.S. and abroad. Kansas Governor Laura Kelly signed a proclamation to recognize the week in Kansas as well.
Central Service professionals are members of the health care team who are responsible for the cleaning and sterilization of surgical instruments that are essential for patient safety. If you or someone you love has undergone a surgical procedure, a Central Service professional was directly responsible for the cleaning and sterilization of the instruments used throughout your operation.
Please join Memorial Health System in honoring these dedicated professionals by celebrating International Central Service Week October 13 – 19, 2019.
