What holiday could be more perfect to celebrate at QTS than Sterile Packaging Day? This year, the Sterile Packaging Manufacturers Council (SPMC) declared Wednesday, March 10 to be the first ever Sterile Packaging Day.
The Fundamental Elements of Sterile Packaging Day
Sterile Packaging Day recognizes and celebrates three pillars:
Patient safety is at the heart of sterile packaging. Doctors, nurses, EMTs, caregivers and even patients themselves can effectively administer care thanks to the safety and integrity of the sterile packages protecting the medical devices and supplies they need.
Peace of Mind
When you or a loved one requires medical care, your focus is on a successful outcome and recovery. Knowing that the medical tools necessary for treatment are protected from contamination offers you and your medical team important peace of mind.
Supply Chain Strength
From the procurement of the raw materials, to the stringent manufacturing process of the package itself, every link in the supply chain plays a vital role in creating protective packaging that can withstand rigorous sterilization processes and maintain its sterility until it’s opened.
Each of these pillars highlight the importance of what we do within the medical device industry. Our priority is to keep patients safe by upholding our stringent quality standards to ensure that the patient, their loved ones, and their medical team can feel at peace about the device or implant being used.
Recognizing the Importance of our Contributors
We believe it is important to recognize all of the effort put forth by both our employees and those in our industry who contribute to the integrity and quality of sterile packaging.
We were happy to observe Sterile Packaging Day in celebration and gratitude of our employees who commit to patient safety each day by upholding our thorough sterile packaging processes and standards.
