Importance of Sterilization and Disinfection
Disinfection and sterilization are essential for ensuring that medical and surgical instruments do not transmit infectious pathogens to patients. Sterilization of all patient-care items is not necessary, health-care policies must identify, primarily on the basis of the items intended use, whether cleaning, disinfection, or sterilization is indicated.
Not every industry will have the same guidelines and regulations as such of a healthcare facility. However, it is just as important to learn this information and to voluntarily improve practices through education even if it is not enforced.
Multiple studies in many countries have documented a lack of compliance with established guidelines for disinfection and sterilization. Failure to comply with scientifically-based guidelines has led to numerous outbreaks. In this course, we present a pragmatic approach to the judicious selection and proper use of disinfection and sterilization processes. This information is based on well-designed studies presented by the CDC, assessing the efficacy through laboratory investigations and effectiveness through clinical studies of disinfection and sterilization procedures.
