Perhaps one of the most promising areas of innovation is medical technology. Advancements in diagnosis and treatment protocols are largely thanks to more sophisticated, “smart” devices. However, in some instances, the same old concerns matter most when it comes to risk mitigation. A prime example is the sterilization of medical equipment. Can you imagine learning that the surgical instruments used in your recent medical procedure were contaminated?
We’re pleased to announce the availability of our latest whitepaper titled “Sterilization: The Ultimate in Clean” authored by OneBeacon Technology Risk Control Specialist Norine McVann. The whitepaper defines the sterilization process and describes best practices that will help mitigate the associated exposures, a helpful resource for those of you representing such clients. Norine is also available for consultation on this matter and may be reached directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
