ECRI Institute Issues Steris System 1 High Priority Alert and Recommendations: Free Guidance to Help Hospitals Map out Transition to Alternative Reprocessing Methods
Date:12/14/2009

Systems and Accessories: U.S. Healthcare Facilities Should Begin Plans for Transition to Acceptable Alternatives© [Update]
  • Reprocessing Alternatives for Flexible Endoscopes©, a matrix of product specifications for 14 models that can be considered for reprocessing of flexible endoscopes
  • "Until the transition can be completed--a process, that given its complexity and importance, may take several months or more depending on the unique circumstances of each user--ECRI Institute believes that it is reasonable to continue using the SS1 as each facility deems necessary to support clinical needs," adds Keller.

    Full access to the December 11, 2009, priority alert, "STERIS--System 1 Sterile Processing Systems and Accessories: U.S. Healthcare Facilities Should Begin Plans for Transition to Acceptable Alternatives (Update)" and the "Reprocessing Alternatives for Flexible Endoscopes" matrix from ECRI Institute's Healthcare Product Comparison System(TM), are available for free (with registration) at https://www.ecri.org/Forms/Pages/STERIS-System-1-(SS1)-Replacement.aspx.

    Alerts are issued weekly in Health Devices Alerts(TM), a component of membership in ECRI Institute's Health Devices System, Health Devices Gold(TM), and SELECTplus(TM) programs. Each alert includes a priority level, problem summary, perspectives, and recommendations for responding to the problem.
