Endoscope manufacturers have developed revised checklists to increase the effectiveness of reprocessing. This course covers reprocessing best practices, and common errors and manufacturer warnings.
Every step of reprocessing is important, and the later steps of high-level disinfection and sterilization cannot be completely effective if the earlier steps of pre-cleaning and cleaning are not performed perfectly.
This course encourages endoscope reprocessing technicians to become defenders of patient safety for those undergoing endoscopy procedures. It emphasizes that their work must never be regarded as routine: The stakes are very high and their work is key to breaking the chain of infection transmission in a hospital setting.
Amplifire offers two versions of this course:
