Patricia Gonzalez-Carreno: Tech II
We all work together to make sure that everything we do meets every standard to ensure that patients get the best attention when they come for surgery.
Local Victoria Hospital Support
Patricia Gonzalez-Carreno plays an easily overlooked but crucial part in Manitoba's healthcare system in her work as a Tech II at Victoria General Hospital in Winnipeg.
Patricia and her colleagues that work in medical device reprocessing have to ensure that every instrument or piece of equipment that is used in the operating room (or any service where a sterile procedure is required) has been sterilized. Safe and successful procedures would not happen without clean and sterile instruments.
Patricia has been in her job at Victoria General for 7 years since working in the same field in her native Chile. Being able to continue to work in the field in which she began and was trained gives her great satisfaction.
On the front lines in the Manitoba healthcare system, people like Patricia are there every day making sure the important details are taken care of so that Manitobans get the level of care they depend on.
