Nurse from Hospital de Santiago completes Master's in Perioperative Nursing

The nurse in charge of the Hospital de Santiago Operating Theater and Central Sterilization Service, Luís Miguel Martins, completed his Master's in Perioperative Nursing at the Escola Superior de Superior (Setúbal Polytechnic) with a final mark of 18 out of 20.

Developments in the area of sterilization have closely mirrored the progress of medical devices and surgical techniques. This is an area critical to the proper functioning of a hospital, and specifically the operating theater, and its main objective is the maintenance and safety of the surgical environment. As part of his Master's course, Luís Miguel Martins' project focused on the reprocessing and sterilization of medical devices, an area to which few professionals have devoted their studies.
