Endoscope traceability services expansion at CUH, Bantry & Mallow general hospital

More and more healthcare technologies are now being integrated with clinical information systems in order to ensure all patient data is captured throughout their journey in our hospitals. How does our Medical Staff ensure patient care and simultaneously monitor and capture all this data? The real challenge is to ensure the benefits of recording this information are understood and implemented thus ensuring traceability is maintained. This particular challenge involved tracking the journey of endoscope from its use on a patient to decontamination in the HSSD/Endoscopy unit. There are a number of steps in this endoscope journey:

  • Removal of contaminated scope from treatment room
  • Manual wash in sink
  • Washing/Disinfection in automated washer/disinfector
  • Drying and storage of endoscope in a drying cabinet/SureStore/Plasma Typhoon cabinet
