The decision and opportunity to move central sterile supply operations off campus can present many challenges, but when done correctly it can optimize efficiency and save money for a health care system. The design team and owner who collaborated on such a facility for the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics (UIHC) will present a case study on their project – one of only a handful of off-campus CSS facilities in the nation. The project engineer, architect, health care process consultant and owner will share their perspectives on the challenges, solutions, and process of designing and constructing a successful, consolidated off-campus CSS.
- Identify the key decision points when evaluating whether to have your central sterile department on campus or to relocate to an off-site location
- Explain how to determine the optimum flow and process for an off-site central sterile department
- Describe the transportation, logistics, contingency planning and redundancies needed for an off-site CSS
- List central sterile design solutions to meet current needs with the flexibility to achieve future surgical forecasts
