The Association of periOperative Registered Nurses has awarded the AORN Seal of Recognition to the PerfectCLEAN Operating Room program developed by UMF Corporation, a manufacturer and innovator of infection prevention products.
While not an endorsement, the Seal of Recognition is confirmation that the PerfectCLEAN Operating Room program material has met the guidelines of the AORN Perioperative Standards and Recommended Practices for Environmental Cleaning, according to a news release.
The specific components of UMF Corporations PerfectCLEAN Operating Room program material 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.”
Perioperative nurses rely on healthcare industry representatives to teach proper use of products and services that will be used in and around the OR, according to the news release. “The education program materials submitted by UMF Corporation are informative and meet the associations standards for excellence in safe patient care,” Lisa Spruce, RN, DNP, ACNS, ACNP, ANP, CNOR, director of evidence-based perioperative practice for the AORN, said in the news release. “Perioperative nurses can be confident in its content.”
