Instituto Mário Penna reaches another important milestone in providing quality care to its patients. Last week, the STERRAD 100NX AllClear equipment was used by the Material and Sterilization Center (CME) team. It is a high-tech device for the sterilization of surgical materials and IMP is the only SUS provider in Brazil that has it.
Mariangela Moreira do Nascimento, Nursing Supervisor at the CME, explains that the STERRAD 100NX AllClear is a device that performs sterilization at low temperature with hydrogen peroxide plasma gas, in a safe way, without leaving toxic residues. “The arrival of the equipment will enable some improvements to the CME, such as a reduction in sterilization time, quality assurance, patient safety through the traceability of the processing of health products.”
The CEO of Instituto Mário Penna, Marco Antônio Viana Leite, congratulated the CME team, which has been implementing constant improvements. “Being a philanthropic hospital and being at the forefront of this technology is very rewarding. I just have to thank and congratulate those involved. Bringing these new projects is extremely important for the institution”; stands out.
Mariangela also said that, although Mário Penna already has several equipment for cleaning and sterilizing materials, the arrival of the new STERRAD 100NX AllClear machine will add to the STERRAD NX AllClear. This will provide even greater reliability in sterilization, as the information from the equipment will be transferred to the traceability system, where the entire step-by-step processing of hospital material will be filed.
