Surgical Sterilization and Disinfection: Assemble Cleaned Items for Sterilization Mobile App
The Surgical Sterilization and Disinfection: Assemble Cleaned Items for Sterilization app was developed to make available a training aid which will assist Surgical Service Technicians to develop technical skills essential to performing specialized tasks.
How does it work?
The tasks are broken down into teachable elements, which help the trainer guide the trainee into becoming proficient with the tasks. The app will also aid the task certifier when evaluating trainees for task certification. The apps evaluation instructions cover the following: 1. This app should be evaluated during actual performance of the tasks. 2. After the trainee has received instruction, allow sufficient practice on each part of the task. The trainee must satisfactorily perform all parts of the task without assistance. 3. Use the appropriate checklist when evaluating the task to ensure all steps of the task are accomplished. NOTE: This checklist is divided into distinct steps-sort, inspect, select, and arrange. Novice/inexperienced trainees generally follow these steps separately. However, more experienced trainees may elect to perform some steps simultaneously, i.e. may sort, inspect, select, and arrange all of one type instrument in one step rather than sort all instruments, then inspect all, etc. This is acceptable providing the trainee performs all steps on all items.
