Flexible and Semi-rigid Endoscope Reprocessing in Health Care Facilities
Processing (or reprocessing) is carried out on a device to allow its subsequent safe use, which can include cleaning, disinfection, sterilization, or related procedures to ensure the device is safe for the next patient. ST91 includes the guidelines for the processing of flexible endoscopes and it is important that all healthcare facilities understand key points of this new standard.
