Excursion to the Berlin ­Trauma Hospital

Observation of sterilization processes and associated logistics in a hospital.

Students visit Central Sterile Service Department of Unfallkrankenhaus Berlin (Berlin Trauma Hospital).

The students conducted an observation of the sterilization processes and associated logistics at the Berlin Trauma Hospital. As part of their company project module, the students analysed the sterile goods-related process landscape in the central sterile processing department, as well as in the pre- and post-operative phases in operating rooms.

The aim of the project is the research on approaches to optimise the tracking of sterilized goods and validation of surgical container contents. In addition, the specific perspectives of the students coming from various professional backgrounds (surgery, pharmaceutical logistics, controlling) complemented each other very well.
