Due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic it has become more difficult to access necessary supplies used in sterile reprocessing.
I am aware that many of you are having problems accessing adequate supply of sterilizing wrap from your regular suppliers and having to purchase from an alternate source.
I have had several phone calls and emails asking if the alternatively supplied wrap needs to validated before use.
The short answer is a resounding ‘YES” it does need to be validated.
You can do this yourself and document your outcomes. it does not have to be a chore.
if you require help knowing how to go about it please feel free to contact me at Hutt hospital.
