4 CLEANING, STERILIZATION AND DISINFECTION DISINFECTION Disinfectant solutions are used to inactivate any infectious agents that may be present in blood or other body fluids. They must always be available for cleaning working surfaces, equipment that cannot be autoclaved and nondisposable items and for dealing with any spillages involving pathological specimens or other known infectious material. KEY POINTS Cleaning removes debris Disinfection decreases the viral and bacterial burden of an instrument, but does not clean debris or confer sterility Sterilization kills microbes.
Always follow local guidelines on the disposal of waste chemicals to ensure that chemical contamination of the surrounding land or water supply does not occur. Provide a safe system for getting rid of disposable items such as scalpel blades or needles. The risk of injury with sharp objects increases with the distance they are carried and the amount they are manipulated. A container for the safe disposal of sharp objects should be: Well labelled Puncture proof Watertight Break resistant (a glass container could break and provide a serious hazard to the person cleaning up the mess) Opening large enough to pass needles and scalpel blades, but never large enough for someone to reach into Secured to a surface, such as a wall or counter, to ensure stability during use Removable for disposal.
The purpose of disinfection is to reduce the risk to those who have to handle the instruments during further cleaning. Reusable needles must always be used with great care. After use, they should be placed in a special container of disinfectant before being cleaned and sterilized. Thick gloves should be worn when needles and sharp instruments are being cleaned. There are many disinfectant solutions, with varying degrees of effectiveness. In most countries, the most widely available disinfectant is sodium hypochlorite solution (commonly known as bleach or chloros), which is a particularly effective antiviral disinfectant solution.
