Is it time to reconsider Spaulding? Our knowledge of viruses has developed over the years and recent scientific reports of microbial resistance to sterilants such as aldehydes raise many concerns. Glutaraldehyde is commonly used as a high level disinfectant, or sterilant, depending on what is cleared for use in your country. As aldehyde resistance becomes more common, we need to be aware of the impact this has on healthcare facilities and patients.
