SDMS 2018  8 Tools to Help

The rapid expansion of ultrasound has brought great benefit to patients, however, there are some patient safety challenges to navigate. The spectrum of ultrasound procedures from surface ultrasound, endocavitary scans and ultrasound guided invasive procedures will be explored. Procedural variety, end-users and factors influencing the probe’s Spaulding classification will be discussed as considerations for facilities when developing ultrasound policy. 

The toolkit has been assembled in consultation with clinical experts with backgrounds in infection prevention and instrument reprocessing. The toolkit provides resources regarding infection prevention during the use and reprocessing of ultrasound probes.
