COVID-19 Information Sheet

Dear Members and Colleagues,

The Sterilising Research and Advisory Council of Australia (SRACA) Victoria have been asked if we should be doing anything different in CSSD during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The answer is:

Follow the Government & Health Service Organisation requirements and continue to do the great work we do.
As a reminder:

  • All used reusable medical devices returning to CSSD from the operating theatre, wards, clinics and other procedure rooms are considered contaminated
  • All staff working in the decontamination room should be wearing personal protective equipment including face shield, gown and gloves
  • Automated cleaning with thermal disinfection is recommended where possible, consistent with the instructions for use and local protocols
  • Staff are to ensure good hand and personal hygiene practices are demonstrated at all times
  • No personal mobile phones in CSSD
  • Surfaces in all areas are to be cleaned frequently. This includes frequently touched items such as keyboards, phones and scanners
  • Entry to CSSD should be restricted to essential staff
  • Keep yourself, colleagues, family and your community safe
