Each year, thousands of surgical and invasive medical procedures are performed just in Whatcom County
Every procedure involves contact by a medical device or surgical instrument with a patient’s tissue or mucous membranes. These procedures carry the risk of introduction of pathogens that may cause infection. Failure to properly disinfect or sterilize equipment as well as the surgical environment carries risks associated with the transmission of infectious pathogens.
Disinfection is essential to ensuring the environment for medical and surgical procedures does not promote the transmission of infectious pathogens to patient or healthcare workers.
