The Certified Sterile Processing Technician is an integral member of the health care team. Even though they work behind the scenes, their responsibility is a very important one.
 
They serve two primary roles within the facility. First, they are responsible for cleaning and sterilizing reusable utensils and equipment from the hospital’s various departments. Second, they’re storekeepers with responsibility for ensuring that they have adequate inventory of instruments and disposable items to meet the needs of doctors, nurses,surgeons, and technical staff throughout the hospital. Both are important in maintaining the safety and well-being of the patient.
