LeeSar Earns Distinguished DNV Certification
LeeSar/CSF has received certification from DNV GL Healthcare for their Sterile Processing Program with Lee Health affirming both organizations’ commitment to excellence in sterile processing. LeeSar is the first off-site Sterile Processing center in the country to receive this certification.
“DNV GL certification provides affirmation that we have the resources and commitment to provide the best possible care for our surgical patients,” says Scott Kashman, Chief Acute Care Officer at Lee Health. “It’s a combination of the right partnerships, processes, equipment, personnel and training to exhibit excellence in sterile processing. Certification is not a requirement. Achieving certification validates all the effort put into this program to ensure the health and safety of our patients.”
The DNV GL Healthcare Sterile Processing Program Certification is based on standards set forth by the DNV GL Healthcare standard and adherence to guidelines of the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) and the Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses (AORN) and affirms that the organization addresses the full spectrum of sterile processing and establishes clear metrics to evaluate outcomes.
“Achieving certification shows commitment to excellence,” says Patrick Horine, CEO of DNV GL Healthcare. “And it helps demonstrate to your community that you are performing at the highest level.”
