Lean SPD (Paperback)
Lean SPD provides a simple guide to implementing and sustaining lean practices within hospital based sterile processing departments. Along the way, SPD Manager Rob and his team at City Hospital provide a novel style story of a sterile processing department progressing through a Lean transformation.
Lean SPD explains lean concepts, how they apply to sterile processing, and leadership responsibilities for long-term sustainability. Concepts are introduced and talked to in a common-sense fashion with real life sterile processing examples and case studies.
The book aims to help SPD Managers understand how they can effectively implement lean practices in their department in a manner that will be accepted, sustained, and understood by the entire staff. No fancy terminology or hard to understand theories - just good on-the-floor practices everyone can embrace and learn from.
