Job Description for Sterile Processing Technician

Sterile processing technicians, also known as surgical technologists, work as part of an operations team in a health care organization. They play an essential role in patient safety as well as infection control. Sterile processing technicians operate the sterilizing equipment such as the autoclave that sterilizes equipment, gloves, and needles. They must obey all hospital policies and are responsible for arranging the surgical equipment in the operating room. They must check, assemble, and adjust all medical tools to ensure they are all functioning properly before the surgery begins. They must make sure all tools and equipment have been decontaminated and that the area is completely sterile before and after procedures. Due to hospitals' around-the-clock schedule, being on-call is often required, as is some holiday work.
