Yesterday Surgical Technologist Students
visited the Central Processing Department at UPMC Hamot. This department is vital to the hospital in maintaining the safety of its patients. Their responsibility it to sterilize and clean surgical equipment to ensure the patients are safe from infections that can spread from contaminated instruments and equipment. The students were taken on a tour of the facility and were able to witness different machines and techniques in sterilization process.
Our surgical team has a repport with UPMC Hamot that allows us to educate our students with the most up-to-date procedures and techniques in the operating room. Our students are able to tour the facility and sit in on different surgical procedures from time to time. Thank you to the staff at UPMC Hamot for taking time from their day to educate our future Surg Tech's!
