Disinfection and Sterilization

Achieving medical care and sterilization through the utilization of disinfectants and sterilization practices is crucial for ensuring that medical and surgical instruments do not transmit infectious pathogens to patients. Medical advances have brought rescue care to patients in need; however several of these advances come with a risk of HAI. Overall there are an estimated 1.7 million HAIs each year in the United States that cost an estimated $40 billion. These infections associated with treatment are often devastating and even deadly. Because it is unnecessary to sterilize all patient-care items, healthcare policies must identify whether cleaning, disinfection, or sterilization is indicated based primarily on the items’ intended use. A major risk of all such procedures is the introduction of infection. Failure to properly disinfect or sterilize equipment carries not solely the chance related to breach of the host barriers however the extra risk of person-to-person transmission.
