WINCHESTER — Tucked away near WDMH’s Operating Room is the Medical Device Reprocessing Department. The MDRD team plays an important role, ensuring that equipment is clean, sterilized, and ready for use when needed.
Recently, because of generous donors, the Foundation was able to provide funds for a new sink for the department. This specialized sink is used to clean and sterilize surgical tools and equipment. It is ergonomically designed and moves up and down. This provides a safer, more comfortable experience for staff members, no matter what their height.
It’s a small thing that makes a big difference! the hospital declares.
As with anything in healthcare, the price wasn’t too small, though. The new sink clocked in at just over $18,092.
