As many of you know, one of the least recognized jobs in any hospital is cleaning instruments or sterile processing ( SPD ). But it is also one of the most important services. Here on our mission the volunteers are working long hours because some of the equipment is not working well or not at all. We hope to have access to at least 2 sterilizers in order to clean the instruments and have them ready for use. Here we have 1 functioning unit and it is not working at full capacity. Consequently, the team of Patti, Liliana, Mac and Rosa are having to spend well over 12 hours a day trying to keep up. They may complain at bit, but they are still smiling. Thanks to them for taking one for the team!
