Introduction

The Saudi Forum for Hospital Sterilization Services is committed to developing standards of excellence in medical device decontamination. It develops educational training programs for staff operating in this field. It provides guidelines for the Health Service, private sector and Government departments, for the safe and effective decontamination of medical devices.

Objectives

The Objectives of the SFHSS are:

  1. To promote the sharing of knowledge, research and investigation in the:
    • Principles and practices of sterilization and disinfection
    • Provision of sterile supplies
    • Control of infection and microbiological contamination in health care facilities and community services
  2. To encourage healthcare managers and staff to achieve high levels of patient and personnel safety through stringent medical device sterilization practices. The Society supports this goal by recognizing the overlap between central service functions and sterile processing, and providing an educational forum and tools to enable central service-sterile processing professionals to be efficient and effective in the areas of controlling and monitoring medical devices, infection control, and the administration of safety practices that benefit healthcare workers and the public at large.
