Quotes

..."This year's conference is about enabling insightful, future-oriented decision-making in an ever-changing world of work," he says. "The demands on leaders are great so we are responding with a high-calibre speaker programme."
"What are some of the primary concerns/thoughts (as a representative of the EDC) with the Rigs to Reefs program in California?"
"For ST90, we have circulated a first working draft document to the committee for comment," says Susan Gillespie, director of standards for AAMI. "At our sterilization meetings in April, we will be discussing those comments and are moving to the next working draft.  I think one of the most important things that will come out of the document is that although usually quality systems are thought of as a management tool, this is really for the sterile processing professional to use with their department management. It's something they can use to improve practices in their own hospitals. It will help them improve conversations with their managers, and help achieve buy-in on what systems are needed for the department to run more smoothly., Usually these quality-systems documents have focused on manufacturers, not on users, so it's a new idea for a lot of people in sterile processing but I think that once the document is done it will be a valuable tool.  We can't predict at this point when the document will be finished but we have a very strong first draft and I think the discussion at the April meeting will give us an indication of where we need to go from here."
"The vehicle's tracking the floor, so when the floor dives, so does the vehicle. And the vehicle goes, 'Uh oh, I'm not supposed to be here' and punches up" said David Gallo, director of special projects at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
