Teamwork Shines in Sterile Processing

December 12, 2018 -
PORT ANGELES – Olympic Medical Center Chief Financial Officer Darryl Wolfe recognized the efforts of OMC’s sterile processing group at the December 5 Board of Commissioners meeting. Sterile Processing Manager Brad Macomber, and Certified Registered Central Service Technicians Douglas Wilson, Jennifer Duncan, Justin Horn, Loretta Lesure, Michael Deasy, Nick Spurrier, Rosemary Wasden, Sean Emerton and Sharron Merritt each were honored for ongoing performance improvement initiatives.

"Despite constantly evolving workflow processes, manufacturer guidelines and government regulations, this team continues to achieve milestones in adhering to national best practices,” says Wolfe.

The sterile processing unit sterilizes and distributes more than 4,000 medical tools and devices monthly to the hospital emergency department, intensive care unit, the labor and delivery unit, operating room and clinics throughout the organization.

"During the past two years, the entire sterile processing staff have become certified and formed into an incredible team,” says Kathi Pressley, director of materials management. Pressley noted it is rare in the industry for an entire department to be certified.
