HPSS Controls Assurance Standard Decontamination of Re-usable Medical Devices STANDARD DECONTAMINATION OF RE-USABLE MEDICAL DEVICES There is a system in place that ensures as far as reasonably practicable that all reusable medical devices are properly decontaminated prior to use and that the risks associated with decontamination facilities and processes are adequately managed. OVERVIEW The decontamination of re-usable medical devices is the combination of processes, which if not correctly undertaken, individually or collectively, may increase the likelihood of infectious agents being transferred to individuals, or the environment. The re-usable medical device life cycle comprises the following processes - acquisition, cleaning, disinfection, inspection, disposal, packaging, sterilization, transportation, and storage before use. This cycle is used to render a re-usable item safe for further use. In this standard, the term reusable medical device applies to all such devices whether owned by the organisation, rented, on loan or acquired by any other means.
