The Sterile Services team at Rotherham Hospital provide decontamination and sterilization services for all instruments used in medical and surgical procedures. All instruments are sterilized using the most modern equipment and are subject to:
- A rigorous validated automated washing and disinfection process
- Inspecting and packing
- Steam Sterilization.
All of the processes are monitored and audited and are subject to International and European Standards, giving peace of mind and keeping patients safe. All instrument sets are identified by a specific bar-coded label, which is scanned using hand held terminals for tracking and traceability throughout the decontamination process.
