Instrument disinfection and its properties

Instrument disinfection is essential to maintaining the sterility and cleanliness of medical equipment. With instrument disinfection, the instruments are treated with a chemical solution or a physical process to kill microorganisms, bacteria, fungi and viruses that are on the surface. This can be done through heat treatment, chemical soaking, and numerous other methods. Instrument disinfection is essential to protect healthcare workers and patients from infection - it also helps prevent instruments from cross-contamination between patients. Instrument disinfection should be routine in all areas where medical instruments are used, and specific protocols should be established for each type of instrument to ensure maximum safety and effectiveness.
