Process This Episode 26: Chemical Disinfection Challenges and Choices, Part 2

This episode continues our conversation with guest speaker Peggy Spitzer of Certol International. She discusses chemical disinfection and its role in infection control and prevention, while emphasizing the challenges of “human factors” that impact the effectiveness of chemical disinfection (such as improper water temperature, inaccurate dosing of chemicals, and failing to match the right chemical with the right device). She also covers the resources available to guide in proper chemical selection and usage.

This podcast’s Mailbox Mania portion finds host Jon Wood reviewing a few articles from the September/October issue of AAMI’s BI&T publication, which address endoscope processing challenges and HVAC and infection considerations.
