Ultrasound probes are used in almost every department in healthcare today and reprocessing breeches have led to safety alerts issued by The Joint Commission in recent years. This week we sit down with Emily Smith, Clinical Marketing Specialist with CIVCO Medical Solutions, to discuss tangible solutions to the issues surrounding the reprocessing of ultrasound probes facing up to 75% of facilities. What do you need to know about reprocessing ultrasound probes and how can sterile processing professionals establish themselves as subject matter experts beyond issues related specifically to the operating room? Tune in now to find out!

Season 6 CEs will be packaged at the end of the season in a single mega-quiz that includes all six episodes. The quiz will be released through our newsletter and social media pages along with episode 8 later this season.
