February 6, 2018, Lakewood, Colorado – Mesa Labs announced the recipient of the Summit Compliance Award to MCDC as recognition of their organization-wide commitment to infection control, demonstrated by achieving the highest levels of weekly, biological sterilization monitoring compliance. Their commitment helps assure that sterilization equipment is functioning properly, which is a critical measure in keeping patients and professionals safe.
Nicole Murray, MCDC’s Quality and Patient Safety Administrator stated “Mesa Laboratories has been a collaborative partner with our goal in achieving 100% autoclave compliancy for our organization. The staff at the Traverse City lab are very knowledgeable and provide key recommendations such as incorporating the use of daily Class V Integrator Strips into our current sterilization monitoring protocol. Their consistent support not only provides assurance for our staff and patients but ultimately impacts our success with our autoclave compliancy.”
MCDC was created to improve the lives of patients and enhance community health by setting the highest standard of oral health care. As a group, they focus on social entrepreneurship, respect, excellence, honesty, learning, and engagement as their core values.
Mesa Labs’ Summit Compliance Award evolved from the acknowledgment that compliance should be celebrated and commended. “The relationship between My Community Dental Centers and Mesa Labs is an excellent example of what can be achieved when like-minded organizations work together and effectively utilize tools such as our Anytime Compliance Tracking Dashboard, comprehensive laboratory service and automated email notifications. Mesa exists to help our clients achieve compliance and ensure quality to protect what matters most. We are excited and honored to present the Summit Compliance Award to Nicole Murray and the entire team at My Community Dental Centers for their exceptional commitment and efforts to improve sterilizer monitoring compliance.” stated Justin Dawson, Sr. Manager of Sales of Biological Indicators at Mesa Labs.
