Instrumentation: Quality assurance of medical instruments

Maintenance, preparation and care of surgical instruments


Topic block 3: Instrumentation in clinics

Target group:
Employees and managers from CSSD and AEMP

Seminar Objective:

Ensure the best possible patient safety by implementing quality elements and quality systems in the procurement, care and maintenance of surgical instruments.

DIN standards 100 and 58 299 define essential requirements in instrument manufacture.
From this follows the derivation of suitable measures for maintaining the quality of the instrument stock.
The sustainable reprocessing, handling, care and maintenance of the instruments (medical devices) is decisive for the entire product life cycle and the maintenance expenses.
Optimized procedures for preserving the so-called “surgical steel” and maintaining its value significantly reduce operating costs.

Our speaker Ralf Kurzrock is a proven expert in instrument technology.
Based on the relevant standards, he will work with you to develop requirement criteria for the quality of the various instrument groups that will result in long-term instrument use and sustainable patient safety.

Practical examples are used to define quality assurance elements, provide recommendations for action to ensure the best possible use of resources, and explain options for integration into a quality management system.
