At Getinge, we believe that care environments are better when everyone is working together. When you need to deliver the safest surgery for your patients, we are by your side every step of the way, working together as one.

Have instruments at hand when needed

Getinge is the expert of creating a seamless workflow of instrument reprocessing. We can help you develop an efficient and cost-effective workflow to streamline the process from the moment the instruments have been used, to the moment when they are safe and ready to be used again.

The barrier system

Getinge’s designs are based on the barrier principle, ensuring clear separation of soiled, clean and sterile zones. The zones are separated by pass-through washer-disinfectors and sterilizers. Our experts can create an effective solution based upon the size and conditions of your facility.

Soiled zone - from the OR to cleaning and disinfection

Unclean items from the OR, wards, outpatient and other departments arrive at the reception area. After visual inspection, items can be put straight on racks and loaded into the washer-disinfectors. Instruments can also be manually cleaned by soaking, spray-gun rinsing and/or ultrasonic cleaning, before being loaded into the washer-disinfector. 

Clean zone - from cleaning and disinfection to sterilization

The clean and disinfected goods enter the area for sorting, inspection and packing. They can be unloaded manually or by an automated system. Once sorted, inspected and packaged, the goods are ready for sterile processing. 

Sterile zone - from sterilization to the OR

The sterile goods are stored on racks or in storage/distribution trolleys for further transport within the hospital. Getinge supplies various kinds of loading or distribution trolleys that you may need for easy transport.

Planning is the key. When designing a hospital’s sterile production capabilities to accommodate the needs of the next 15 to 20 years, it’s crucial to get things right from the start. With the right architectural planning, you can establish the best possible workflow, which will benefit your facility for years to come. This not only assures hygiene safety and maximum productivity, but also makes a better workplace for the staff.
