Clean Surgical Instruments are safe for the Reprocessing Staff. Cleaning, decontaminating, and reprocessing cannulated surgical instruments presents a risk to the Reprocessing Staff. Surgical instrument cleaning detergents containing antimicrobial substances have been shown to decrease cleaning power. Cleaning must always be preformed prior to the disinfection of surgical instruments and endoscopes, as well as the sterilization of the surgical instruments and endoscopes. The disinfection or sterilization process will not render the efficacy needed unless the cleaning of the surgical instruments has been performed. Combination all-in-one enzymatic surgical instrument cleaner detergent complexes have been shown to be highly effective. It is critical that devices are cleaned properly to secure the safety of workers in the clean area. During the steps of inspection, sorting and packaging of devices, the unprotected processing personnel are repeatedly at risk from a surgical instrument that has remained contaminated with microorganisms. The use of proper hand washing decontamination methods can render surgical instruments that are clean, but requires continual worker exposure to contaminated devises. The use of a properly designed washer decontaminator eliminates and reduces overhead cost and provides consistence removal of all microorganisms. The ONEcleaner surgical instrument cleaner will lower costs for surgical instrument cleaners. The easy FOAM-it surgical instrument cleaner will clean surgical instruments fast. It is a recognized risk of exposure to unidentified microorganisms that reprocessing personal endure during the decontamination, reprocessing, and cleaning of surgical instruments. Our goal is to minimize the amount and degree of reprocessing personal exposure to this risk and provide reprocessed surgical instruments that are clean: safe to handle, safe for patient care, and reprocessed at the lowest cost. Optimal decontamination and use of Surgical Instrument Cleaning Detergents will secure the prerequisite for disinfecting surgical instruments and/or sterilizing surgical instruments. The manual cleaning decontamination surgical instruments presents the risk of infectious puncture wounds. Surgical Instrument Washer and Surgical Instrument Disinfectors In the United States are not approved by the FDA to market their products as Washer Disinfectors. However, many of the Surgical Instrument Washers are manufactured to produce the times and temperatures that can effectively deliver disinfected surgical instruments. Automated Surgical Instrument Washer Decontaminator Disinfectors can safely contain within their chambers the cleaning and decontamination functions, removal of debris, and contaminated aerosols. The batch treatment of reprocessing surgical instruments using automated Surgical Instrument Washer Disinfectors saves time, increases material through-put, improves surgical instrument turnaround times, provides for FTE reduction, and lowers cost for Surgical Instrument Cleaners. It has been demonstrated that a properly designed Surgical Instrument Washer Disinfector, that is used to manufacturer’s specifications, will consistently and repeatedly remove all microorganisms from surgical instruments. Surgical Instrument Washer Disinfectors and Surgical Instrument Cleaners should be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s direction for use, to secure the most consistent and efficacious results. Worker safety and reprocessing efficacy can be compromised by violating the manufacturer’s recommendations. The use of proper hand washing reprocessing methods and Surgical Instrument Cleaners can render surgical instruments that are clean, but requires the continual exposure of the Reprocessing Staff to contaminated surgical instruments. The use of a properly designed surgical instrument washer disinfector reduces the: overhead cost of reprocessing, risks to the Reprocessing Staff and provides consistence removal of all microorganisms from soiled surgical instruments. Optimal use of Surgical Instrument Cleaning Solutions can render surgical instruments that, at the end of decontamination, cleaning, and reprocessing, are sterile.
