SAN DIEGO--()--The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN) has awarded its AORN Seal of Recognition™ to the PerfectCLEAN® Operating Room program developed by UMF Corporation, a manufacturer and innovator of infection prevention products.
“We continue to strive to innovate and provide the ‘best practices’ supported by the best-in-class infection prevention products in the battle to reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).”
The announcement comes on the eve of AORN’s 60th Annual Congress (March 2-7) being held in San Diego, CA, where UMF Corporation will be exhibiting (Booth 5250).
According Ramona Connor of AORN, the AORN Seal of Recognition confirms that the content of the PerfectCLEAN Operating Room program has undergone thorough review by AORN and meets the guidelines of the “AORN Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices.” While not an endorsement, the Seal of Recognition is confirmation that the PerfectCLEAN Operating Room program has met AORN standards of excellence in safe patient care.
The specific components of UMF Corporation’s PerfectCLEAN Operating Room program that have been recognized by AORN are the “PerfectCLEAN Handbook,” and a series of checklists – “24-hour Idle OR Processing,” “Between Procedure Processing OR,” “Pre-First Procedure Processing of the Operating Room,” and “Terminal Processing of the Operating Room.”
“This recognition by AORN is a truly gratifying and significant acknowledgment of our PerfectCLEAN Operating Room program,” said Bill Slezak, UMF Corporation’s vice president of Healthcare. “We continue to strive to innovate and provide the ‘best practices’ supported by the best-in-class infection prevention products in the battle to reduce healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).”
