My hospital switched to disposable safety straps on the OR tables. Originally it was intended to change after each surgical patient. Due to "budget" they are only changed after visably soiled. Even though they are wiped with a disinfectant after each case I don't feel they are adequately cleaned because of the velcro. I don't think the cleaner penetrates the depth of the velcro. In this age of MRSA/ORSA/VRE I think they should be disposed of after each use....Am I being too stringent?
