NZSSA Position Re Return of Loan Sets

IMPORTANT NOTICE RE AS/NZS4187:2014

A surgeon has asked me to sterilise glass bottles because they are small in size. They will then take the sterile Spray  insert from a larger sterile spray bottle unit and use with the glass bottle.

I am not happy with this arrangement.

a) The glass bottles are bought from a wholesaler and do not come with MIFU

b) It is a waste of money throwing out the reservoir from the plastic spray bottle kit.

Do any of you sterilise small glass bottles for spraying sterile water on the operation site in theatre?

Where do you purchase them from and do you have copies of the MIFU I can review?
