Materials and Methods: A total of 180 CSSD staff from 36 hospitals were enrolled as the research objects and investigated using “self-assessment questionnaire of the competence in insulation testing on electrosurgical instruments and the needs of training”. Results: The overall self-assessment score of competence in insulation testing on electrosurgical instruments for CSSD staff is 3.10 ± 0.42, including four dimensions which are attitude, system, cognition, and skills with the scores 3.31 ± 0.55, 2.80 ± 0.63, 2.74 ± 0.68, and 3.03 ± 0.36, respectively. Based on the survey of training needs for CSSD staff, the top three ranked training needs are trace management record of insulation testing on electrosurgical instruments (93.89%), disposal procedures for insulation damage of electrosurgical instruments (92.78%), and adverse events caused by leakage of electrosurgical instruments (80.55%).
