Surgical Instrument reprocessing and high-level disinfection is only successful if the multiple steps required by the medical device manufacturers are followed, the resources necessary are available and if the infrastructure required have met all the determined standards. To ensure the facility is providing high quality utilities for instrument reprocessing and to comply with latest AAMI ST79 and TIR 34 requirement steam and water quality must be tested and monitor on a regular basis. Steam and water quality might be the cause of wet loads, extended dry times, corrosion and staining of instruments and wrap. The technical review will assess your facility conditions and rate it against regulatory standards for proper illumination for inspection/cleaning areas, adequate temperature and humidity levels, equipment condition and optimization including cycle parameter modification.
