  •  Explain basic standards and practices used for sterile processing in dental facilities:  Environmental Issues  Instrument Processing Procedures  Provide an overview of Veterans’ Administration (VA) facilities, and list sterile processing differences between VA and other healthcare facilities
  •  Even though the type of facility may vary, the science of cleaning, decontamination, inspection, packaging, sterilization and sterile product handling does not change
  •  A healthcare facility that allows patients to have selected surgical and procedural services performed that do not require hospital admission

  •  Fast-paced  Tight instrument turnover timelines
  •  Cleaning/Decontamination  Instrument Assembly  Sterilization  Sterile Storage
  •  Require: ◦ Cleaning and Decontamination ◦ Preparation and Packaging ◦ Sterilization ◦ Inventory Management and Storage
  •  Clinical Contact Surfaces (infection control) ◦ - Surfaces that can be directly contaminated during patient care; examples are: contamination from sprays, splatters, or direct contact with a dental professional’s gloved hand  Housekeeping Surfaces (infection control) ◦ - Surfaces such as floors, walls, and sinks that pose a risk of disease transmission  Environmental Surfaces (infection control) ◦ - Surfaces or equipment that do not contact the patient directly, but may become contaminated during patient acre; examples are: light and power unit switches and drawer knobs
  •  Transport  Cleaning/Decontamination  Inspection  Assembly  Packaging  Sterilization  Sterilization Quality Assurance  Storage and Handling
  •  Central Service Departments are called Supply, Processing, and Distribution (SPD) Departments  Has its own certification program and continuing education requirements  Follows directives that set guidelines for sterile processing
  •  Clinics  Veterinary Hospitals  Third Party Reprocessing Facilities  Manufacturers
