Thanks for welcoming me to your conference! If you enjoyed our time together, which I assume you did – since you are here – please join our Your Life, Unlimited community by signing up for the ‘A’ game e-news letter to your right. You will get a monthly short burst of inspiration to give you an idea for better living!

Remember the formula K + C = H2 and keep working harder on yourself than on anything else.

Here is the tribute that I wrote for your group, feel free to share it as you would like.

Central Service Supply and Material Management
Sometimes I don’t know how you can stand it

In the hospital basement, the bowels of that place
Sterile Processing Technicians continue the race

With little respect and surely under-valued
Under appreciated and way under-salaried

You carry out your duties with your held held high
Even if the surgeons won’t meet your eye

You help the patients who will never know
That you were the first in the chain of events down below

That led to the surgeries successful and sterile
That saved them from death, illness and peril

You clean, decontaminate, pack and sterilize
You do one of the most vital jobs in the hospital, but they don’t realize

How you help save lives, it’s a critical fact
Without you at the helm, they’d be way off track

From decon though to the prep and pack stage
It’s time to stand up and educate

The public and staff on the jobs that you do
Tell them, “I save lives!” Ask them,  “What do you do?

Be proud of the contribution that you make every   day
Without thanks, accolades or a bonus in pay

Head up, chest out and fill it with pride
Without you the medical world would collide

Without Sterile Processing and Central Supply
Our loved ones would most certainly die

So I send you a thank you and a virtual hug
For removing the tissues, the bone chips and blood

I send gratitude on behalf of the many
Who prayed as their loved ones rolled off on a gurney

Thanks from the survivors, you’ll never see
I thank you from them and I thank you from me.

Here is the pdf of the tribute, if you would like to print it out or share it – you are most welcome: IAHCSMM tribute
