Autoclave

  1. We use an autoclave in my office and I was wanting to make sure I'm remembering correctly as it's been a while since I used one. From what I remember, when arranging instruments on the trays they can NOT touch the sides or each other, since the steam can't clean where it can't reach; pouches or peel packs are limited to 2 instruments per pouch; and is it one tag per tray or one tag per load (the sterile indicator tags)? Thanks!

    Always check your policies. Beyond that, what kind of office? The specialty organization may have standards and guidelines published.
