|Subject:||Resolution Recognizing October 8-14, 2017 as International Central Service Week in Pennsylvania|
|I will soon be introducing a Resolution to recognize International Central Service Week in Pennsylvania as October 8-14, 2017 because cleanliness is critical at all healthcare facilities across Pennsylvania.
The Central Service Department at a healthcare facility is responsible for cleaning, assembling, sterilizing, storing, and distributing the medical devices and supplies needed for patient care. Central Service technicians ensure medical staff in operating rooms, ICUs, endoscopy suites, birth centers, and other patient care areas receive sterile surgical instruments, supplies, and equipment integral in providing the best possible patient care. Their commitment to maintaining high standards of sanitation is crucial in keeping Pennsylvanians safe.
Please join me in recognizing the important role central service departments play in providing the best care to Pennsylvanians by co-sponsoring this Resolution.
