What is Sterile Processing Week?

Before we can answer "What is Sterile processing week?" we first must answer "What is sterile processing?" Deep inside hospitals, surgery centers, and clinics around the globe there is a team of clinical heroes working 24/7 to ensure every surgery is a safe surgery -- from the smallest pediatric heart Procedure to the most common appendectomy, and every surgery in between. Most patients never see these heroes or understand the tremendous impact they have on the outcome of their procedures, but this doesn't stop their passionate commitment to Fight dirty, every instrument every time.
