Standards for cleaning, disinfection and sterilization of reusable medical devices for health care facilities and settings

Description

These standards set minimum requirements for cleaning, disinfection and sterilization of reusable medical devices. The goals of these standards are to: minimize the risk of exposure or injury and prevent transmission of microorganisms; contain contaminated materials; minimize damage to medical devices from foreign material or inappropriate handling; and minimize the time from the point of use to reprocessing of the medical device. Higher standards may be required based on specific circumstances. Standards and guidelines established by Health Canada and the CSA may also be applicable.
