Richard Wolf Medical Instruments Launches Narrow-Channel Reprocessing Training

VERNON HILLS, Ill., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To ensure thorough cleaning and sterilization of narrow-channel flexible endoscopes, Richard Wolf Medical Instruments Corp. has created a reprocessing education and training series, complete with step-by-step posters to display in Perioperative and Central Sterile Supply settings.


Richard Wolf will debut the series, along with new surgical products and video devices, at the 60th Annual Congress of AORN, the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses, March 3-7, 2013 in San Diego.

Currently the subject of intense focus across the health care industry, the reprocessing of surgical instruments is increasingly recognized as a critical factor in preventing infection. Today's endoscopes maximize access and comfort during surgical procedures, but their narrow channels demand systematic decontamination, disinfection and proper handling with each use, whether they are cleaned manually or by machine.

"Sterility cannot be detected by the naked eye; it requires diligence and vigilance," said Monica Sanders , Corporate Director of Marketing. "Richard Wolf is dedicated to providing not only the most sophisticated tools on the market but also the most complete education to ensure patient safety. Like the health care providers we serve, Richard Wolf delivers optimum care."

Originally oriented to gastrointestinal scopes, the protocols spelled out in the reprocessing series can be applied to other types and brands of flexible endoscopes. The module includes a technical paper, orientation guide and posters written by Richard Wolf's Reprocessing Sr. Product Manager, Sydney Nye, RN , MBA, as well as a video.

"The Joint Commission or any organization who reviews hospital quality programs asks every hospital to document the competencies used to train their employees in reprocessing and sterilization," said Nye. "We've created a competency checklist for them that covers everything the staff needs to know to perform reprocessing and sterilization for flexible endoscopes."

Nye also has written a CE guide for participants who visit the Richard Wolf booth #3339 at the AORN Congress. After completing the self-study guide, the participant will be eligible for 2 CE hours.
