I'm thinking that the sluice room is the pan room - don't they realise that some ccu patients need to defecate and need to do it in a pan?
Most facilities I have worked use the "dirty utility/clean utility" room flow through to reduce cross infection. If it is dirty (i.e. used insertion trays) then it goes to the dirty utility room to be cleaned. This one way flow system stops contamination of clean stock.
I know this reply will be a little DUH! for most respondents but I have seen facilities where there was no cognisance given to this, what seems elimentary, flow system. Worst of all one was a burns unit!
