Have instruments at hand when needed
Getinge is the expert at creating a seamless workflow of instrument reprocessing. We can help you develop the most 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 optimal solution no matter the size of your facility.
Soiled zone - from the OR to cleaning and disinfection
Unclean items from the OR, ICU, outpatient and other departments arrive in the CS. After visual inspection, items can be placed directly on the rack(s) 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.
Optimize the sterile workflow to maximize patient safety
Quality assurance improves patient safety. T-DOC and the wide range of sterile supply management solutions gives you best in class instrument and endoscope traceability all the way to the patient with highly customizability to meet your basic or most advanced requirements.
From initial planning to workflow optimization
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.
