The requirements for instrument reprocessing and related processes are becoming more and more complex. To be able to identify and recognize the correlations in the manifold processes and workflows - paired with a great deal of expertise – is an important prerequisite to make the right decisions in our daily work and to maintain the high level of quality of work in the CSSD. That takes a high level of technical and procedural knowledge. We see it as our task to impart this knowledge.
We want to impart knowledge and expertise to makeyou fit for your daily work. Our offline courses are DGSV and IAHCSMM accredited.

Then take a look at the following list. It contains the recordings of some past webinars.
2021-01-14 | Ask the experts (English, 1:02 h)
In this Q&A session, the experts of the “RUMED Academy” provided answers to questions from the audience.
2021-02-18 | Design of RUMED – challenge your process flows (English, 1:31 h)
The design of your RUMED is important for more than one reason. First, there are hygienic requirements to comply to. Then for sure the design of a RUMED has influence on your workflows within the unit.
2021-03-25 | Water quality in processing + topic of rouging (English, 1:29 h)
During the reprocessing of medical devices, in particular on surgical instruments, unwanted surface alterations and discolorations may occur. Some surface alterations and discolorations arise from waterborne minerals during the cleaning and disinfecting process when traces of these are able to dry on the surface. A short excurse will be made to the subject of rouging of stainless steel, it nature, detection, and preventive and corrective measures.
2021-04-22 | Material selection and impact on typical surface changes (English, 1:26 h)
By means of standardized and validated procedures, reusable products are cleaned and disinfected so that they no longer pose a risk of infection. In addition to the effect of the parameters on the contaminants and pathogens, they also affect the products to be reprocessed (e.g. instruments, containers) and the reprocessing equipment (e.g. washer-disinfector). Likewise, the sterilization process as a physical measure under extreme parameters shows influencing factors. In daily practice, the parameters in processing produce a stable and unremarkable result. Nevertheless, sudden changes can occur. Different materials in the application encounter a wide range of parameters. The identification of the cause is therefore not always simple.
2021-05-06 | Proper loading and application of washer and disinfectors (English, 1:13 h)
The automatic cleaning and disinfection, as a validated procedure, is the basis for the subsequent successful sterilization of medical devices and in particular surgical instruments. The variety of instruments in modern surgery for different disciplines poses daily new challenges for reprocessing and manual handling in a RUMED. The correct preparation and loading of the load carriers (racks) is an important component for successful cleaning in a WD. In this webinar we will discuss both the requirements of an WD and the correct best practice for loading the racks.
