New Forum Page

The website has added a forum tab to the menu. The purpose of this is to give both members and non-members an opportunity to ask questions of their peers regarding any aspect of Sterile Processing. Many of us have been doing this for a while (or longer!) and probably have already faced most of the issues that you are facing. This is a chance to learn from the experience of others. It is a moderated forum, so there will be a delay in getting questions and comments posted, but they should be up within 24 hours of submission.
