Effectively removes bacteria, viruses and endotoxins from TD 100 rinse water
The risk of hospital-associated infections has become a focal point in many facilities throughout the United States, as well as other parts of the world. One potential source of contamination is the water that is used to rinse scopes and probes that have been high-level disinfected. High-level disinfection is only one component, regardless of manual or automated method, when healthcare workers are reprocessing semi-critical medical devices. The high-level disinfection process is defined by individual disinfectant manufacturers, which is followed by large volumes of water recommend to remove residue of the disinfectant. As recommended by the CDC and published on the CDC website:
Waterborne bacteria are an ever-growing challenge in healthcare facilities. The effects of these contaminants continue to cause an increasing rise in healthcare costs. Rinse water quality can affect a properly high-level disinfected medical device by introducing bacteria, viruses and endotoxins. CS Medical has partnered with Nephros to provide a solution that provides ultrapure bacteriologically-filtered water during the rinse cycles of the TD 100 Automated TEE Probe Disinfector.
