The cleaning of reusable instruments prior to heat sterilization is a crucial, yet sometime misunderstood, infection-control procedure.
The cleaning of reusable instruments prior to heat sterilization is a crucial, yet sometime misunderstood, infection-control procedure. If biological contamination and other debris are not removed properly, the remaining matter can interfere with microbial inactivation during a sterilization cycle. This compromises the process.
The ultimate goal of infection control practices is to prevent infection from occurring in the first place. Special attention is needed to prevent cross-contamination when instruments are processed for reuse. Furthermore, all surgical instrument patient care utensils and reusable non-invasive instruments must be thoroughly washed and disinfected before they can be successfully sterilized. Since this cleaning and
disinfection step is so crucial, the capabilities and quality of a facility’s washer/disinfector become critical factors for effective reprocessing and infection prevention.
