The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an advisory on 9/11/2015 entitled, Immediate Need for Healthcare Facilities to Review Procedures for Cleaning, Disinfecting, and Sterilizing Reusable Medical Devices.
This advisory is directed at all health care facilities that utilize re-usable medical devices. Due to recent infection control lapses, they ask that facilities immediately review current reprocessing practices at their facility to ensure that they are complying with all steps as directed by the device manufacturers, and that they have in place appropriate policies and procedures that are consistent with current standards and guidelines.
