Healthcare Washer

Why use a washer within the healthcare industry?

A washer disinfector is a piece of equipment that uses water, temperature, time and detergent to wash away human tissue and blood from reusable surgical instruments prior to a sterilisation process being conducted. 90 degree rinsing with RO water enables thermal disinfection to occur which allows harmful bacteria to be killed. The reason instruments need to be washed prior to sterilisation is remove soiling and also ensure the steam sterilisation phase is effective as failing to remove bloods and tissues will render the sterilisation process ineffective. The items placed inside the washer chamber are typically loaded onto headers or carriages and positioned within DIN baskets. Often a washer will be selected with a number of tiers within the carriage that are removable to facilitate multiple height DIN baskets and orthopaedic set boxes to be processed via differing loading configurations as required. The washer will operate a validated wash and rinse cycle followed by a drying phase in accordance with the Health Technical Memorandum 0101. The Health Technical Memorandum 01-01: Management and decontamination of surgical instruments (medical devices) used in acute care Part D: Washer Disinfector provides standards and guidelines for the processing of medical devices.
