Hospitals to Prevent Healthcare-associated


• Hon’ble Union Minister of State, Health and Family Welfare, Shri Ashwini Kumar Choubey was
the Chief Guest of the event, National Scientific Conference organised by Indian Sterilization
Healthcare Association (ISHA) on 20 th October 2019 at Indian Spinal Injuries centre, Delhi.
• The Minister guided the congregation on the ISHA VISION 2020 and released the ISHA
Guidelines meant for Indian Sterile Services.
• The Central Sterile Supply Departments (CSSD) in hospitals can play a key role in the ‘Swachh
Bharat’ movement, and there is a need to consolidate CSSD as an able, individual, technically
competent and self-sufficient department in both corporate and government sectors, he said.
• In the last decade, government departments developed a standard operation procedure for
the central sterile supply departments of hospitals but implementation issues hampered
adoption.
• The Indian Sterilization Healthcare Association is a voluntary organization that works to
eliminate healthcare-associated infection and strengthen CSSD practices in India.
New Delhi, 25.11.2019: Noting that preventing hospital-acquired infection is key to patient safety, the
Indian Sterilization Healthcare Association (ISHA) has pledged to distribute free copies of the ISHA
Guidelines for Indian Sterile services to 1000 hospitals across the country.
Guiding the congregation on the ISHA VISION 2020, hon’ble Union Minister of State, Health and Family
Welfare, Shri Ashwini Kumar Choubey said, “The Central Sterile Supply Departments (CSSD) in hospitals
can play a key role in the ‘Swachh Bharat’ movement, and we need to consolidate CSSD as an able,
individual, technically competent and self-sufficient department in both corporate and government
sectors to fill the void of efficient and effective services. A body like ISHA should be empower as a
beacon of knowledge, a harbinger of good practices and a lighthouse of support. ISHA should seek and
ensure government cooperation to establish academic curriculum, such as a diploma or degree program
for CSSD personnel aligned to their needs.”
Quoting the teachings from Vedas and Upnishads, Dr A K Mukherjee, Director General, Indian Spinal
Injuries Centre (ISIC) said, “India is a strong follower of scientific principles from time immemorial. The
country which echoes the concept of physical, spiritual, social and emotional wellbeing can teach a lot
about scientific principles. Sterile Services need more focus because it is the basis of a healthy life that
people aim to regain when they come to hospitals.”

The Indian Sterilization Healthcare Association is a voluntary organization that works to eliminate
healthcare-associated infection and strengthen CSSD practices in India. The organization dreams to
bring Indian Sterile services at par with International standards. “In the last decade, some work was
done by the government in developing a standard operation procedure to ensure that the central sterile
supply departments of hospitals follow it. However, there were issues at the implementation level due
to which there is no standardized measures for these departments which are important in ensuring the
patients do not acquire infections during their stay at the hospital. Sterile supplies are also crucial to
contain the deadly drug-resistant variants of the viruses and bacteria. Hence, ISHA has decided to
distribute free copies of the ISHA guidelines to at least 1000 hospitals by next year so that we can make
a start towards the goal of eliminating infections at hospital,” said Capt Baban Rai, President, Indian
Sterilization Healthcare Association (ISHA). He also stressed the need of standardization of entry level
education of CSSD professionals across the country so that CSSD services also can be standardized.
