Where Has all the Freshwater Gone?

Did you know that freshwater makes up a very small fraction of all water on the Earth? Nearly 70 percent of the world is covered by water, but only 2.5 percent of it is fresh, and of that just 1 percent is easily accessible. Percentagewise, only 0.007 percent of Earth's water is available to its 6.8 billion people. This is the same amount of freshwater on earth as there always has been...

Cleaning Boosters that Actually Work

This article in Reader’s Digest “8 Secret Ingredients You Should Be Adding to Your Laundry” is an inspiration. Right from the first statement “Don't toss in a laundry pod and think you're done." When you take a moment to unpack the premise that any detergent will do, it makes a lot of sense not just for laundry at home, but for reprocessing contaminated devices in SPD, too.

Misinformation... It’s Many Forms

As the title for this week’s blog says, “Misinformation comes to us in many forms” and it’s not just through social media, though social media is the superhighway or Autobahn of misinformation with no speed limits.

Are Single Use Wipes Safe?

Some are… Some aren’t. Single use wipes have become very popular for cleaning surfaces, wiping baby butts, for personal care, and throughout healthcare facilities for numerous purposes. Afterall, they are convenient, easy to use, single use, and come in a handy package.

Rigid sterilization containers were first introduced in the USA in the early 1980s, but developed much earlier in different forms than we see today.  Since then, new technologies entered the marketplace in the form of new devices and new sterilization modalities. Some of these advances present new sterilization challenges that were not considered earlier.

Education is a life long pursuit

The world is a fast-moving place, and keeping up, staying on top of things, being aware of all the thats going on around you, can seem impossible. There are the daily demands of work, the backlog of items which need attention before moving on to the next stage, or the hecticness of providing fresh, clean, and sterile items when a schedule changes.

What you can count on to consistently provide best outcomes? All things being equal, washer/disinfectors are all very efficient. We all want clean dishes at home and decontaminated instruments in healthcare facilities.  In both scenarios, we want them done with the least amount of effort. That's why dishwashers are so prized in the kitchen and automated washers in decontam. But sometimes, they don't produce the best results.

In light of climate change, the pandemic, and water quality issues, sustainability and safer chemical usage has become a healthcare focus. Healthcare can both contribute to the problem and can be at the forefront of change.
