The following was received in an E-mail correspondence from Gus Vargas. Mr. Vargas is a member of the American Society of Healthcare Risk Managers (ASHRM):

“Joint Commission is paying a very close attention in NC (and the southeast) to Central Sterilization and Central Supply. Please keep records, be sure soaking times for instruments are being followed as per the manufacturer recommendations, keep printed reports from sterilizers, temperatures, and be sure foreign elements are away from these two areas.”
