INSPECTION AND FUNCTIONAL CHECK
It is very important to inspect each surgical/dental instrument for ruptures, cracks or malfunction prior to each use. Above all, areas such as the cutting edges, tips, closures, locks and catches, as well as all moving parts, must be carefully checked. Never use damaged instruments. Do not carry out repairs yourself. Service and repairs must be done by properly trained personnel only. If you have any questions in this regard, ask the manufacturer or your technical medical department.
The ZEPF Tray-In-Tray-System is a proven approach with considerable advantages. It provides an ideal method for ready instrument layout according to the process involved (diagnostics, prophylaxis, extraction, etc.). The Tray-in-Tray System is an optimized approach to efficient cleaning, disinfection, sterilization and storage.
PROTECTION OF PERSONNEL AND THIRD PARTIES
Protective gloves that comply with the specifications of Directive 89/686/ EEC must be worn when handling all used and contaminated instruments to maximize the safety of personnel handling contaminated instruments.
In the stage of reprocessing, contaminated instruments must be cleaned and disinfected promptly, but not later than within 6 hours.
After the treatment of a patient being infected with the Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease, the instruments must neither be reused nor reprocessed. These instruments must be disposed of.STEPS IN INSTRUMENT REPROCESSING RKI CLASSIFICATION
