Congratulations to the James J. Peters Sterile Processing Service and members of the JJP ISO Implementation Team in their award-winning effort to attain ISO 9001 certification. Recently, VISN Director Mike Sabo joined JJP Director Erik Langhoff for a recognition ceremony at the Medical Center. ISO 9001:2008 is a performance improvement process for ensuring consistent outcomes and identifying operational improvements. It is one of the most widely used quality management tools in the world today. ISO means International Organization for Standardization.

Our staff in Sterile Processing Service work behind the scenes ensuring that reusable medical equipment is decontaminated, disinfected, sterilized, assembled, packaged and ready for distribution to the various clinics, departments and units who use them in patient care. The Sterile Processing Service also assists other sister facilities in need of instrumentation reprocessing on an "as-needed" basis. It is a vital job and it is the beginning of the road to a good medical outcome. Thank them for all they do when you see them next!
