Safe Reusable Medical Devices
Manufacturers of reusable medical devices must provide validated reprocessing instructions in their instructions for use of each device. Validation studies of cleaning, disinfection, and sterilisation procedures are essential to ensure the safety of reusable medical devices, as these studies demonstrate that the device can be properly cleaned and reprocessed between patients. The safety aspects of reprocessing medical devices include e.g., the reduction or removal of pathogenic microorganisms, the removal of contamination, and the potential toxicity of cleaning agents. Additionally, it is important to not cause damage to the construction or function of the device, which may also introduce patient hazards.
