Healthcare Consulting, LLC


With years of work in Sterile Processing BD Perioperative Consulting understands that the Sterile Processing Departments (SPDs) are the back bone of any Perioperative Program. BD Perioperative Consulting has identified issues that these departments commonly face, regardless of the facility’s type or size:

  • Inadequate leadership and support from the C-Suite
  • Insufficient staff
  • Lack of staff education and training
  • Poor technological support
  • Inadequate space, equipment, and inventory

These inadequacies lead to daily crisis management in SPD and have a negative effect on the OR. Poor Communication, case cart errors, inadequate instrument set completion, dirty instruments, instruments in poor condition, and an increase in flash sterilization utilization lead to OR case delays, longer case times, OR staff overtime, and cancelled cases.

If these are situations that your organization’s SPD deals with everyday BD Perioperative Consulting can provide a top to bottom evaluation of your SPD and establish the appropriate leadership structure, best practice standards to optimize efficiencies and eliminate routine SPD crisis management.
