Tired Of Doing Operating Room Sterilization The Old Way?

Jan 31, 2016

Operating Room SterilizationCareful and thorough cleaning in an operating room is crucial. Because of the procedures that go on there and the health risks to patients if something is not properly cleaned, it’s essential that every area be scrubbed thoroughly with the proper cleaning materials and substances. But this process is long, time-consuming and it can be exhausting. If you’re doing everything by hand … well that’s just going to make it take even longer. So what can you do to make sure that your operating room is sterilized, clean and tidy without having to spend so much time at it? Well there are a few key things to keep in mind.

  1. Use your tools. There are a lot of tools out there that can make the process of cleaning anything so much easier, faster and more sanitary as well. When it comes to operating room sterilization these things are even more important, so using the right tools is crucial to getting it done right. Your tools could vary from little things like dusters instead of dust cloths to larger ones like a steam floor cleaner instead of a traditional mop. These things make the job much easier and much faster at the same time.
  2. Sterilize everything. Make sure you sterilize everything in the room. Whether it’s something that your patient will actually touch or not you want to make sure you have it cleaned and ready just in case your patient does touch it. Make sure you are using a solution that gets rid of all bacteria, dirt and other harmful (or potentially harmful) aspects as well. Just remember that your operating room has the potential to hold dangerous diseases and germs so if it’s not cleaned and sterilized completely after each procedure and definitely at the end of the night … you never know what could be in there.

Taking care of all of these things at once is not easy. It’s complicated to weigh out everything that needs to be done for your operating room sterilization. After all, your operating room is a pretty big place and it’s full of expensive and important equipment and tools that you use to save lives every day. While you probably can take care of it yourself and get it in tip top shape for your next patient, why should you have to?
