Sterile Processing Department Design and HVAC Considerations

Mar 28, 2018 9:40am ‐ Mar 28, 2018 10:40am


The requirements for sterile processing facilities were significantly revised in the Facility Guidelines Institute’s 2018 Guidelines. The new hospital and outpatient facility documents provide expanded guidance for designing these areas in a manner that supports and encourages compliance with guidelines for cleaning, decontaminating, and sterilizing surgical instruments. The session will cover when a two-room sterile processing facility is required and when a single-room sterile processing facility is acceptable as well as ventilation requirements to support a dirty-to-clean workflow.
