Risk assessment – In this step, we determine if an instrument or equipment is a low risk item, high risk item or an intermediate risk item. This is important in order to know which things need to be cleaned and decontaminated more thoroughly.
Cleaning – Before proceeding to the decontamination process, we first clean all the surfaces, equipments and instruments. All of these must be free from any visible dirt.
Choosing the right disinfectant solutions to be used – You must know that not all viruses and bacteria can be killed using a single type of disinfectant solution. Based on the risk assessment we have done, we then choose the disinfectant solutions that will be best in decontaminating the instruments and equipments.

Decontamination surely reduces the possibility of the instruments and equipments in your hospital from being contaminated. This will help you greatly, as a decontaminated area is sure to bring positive results regarding the recovery of the patients in your facility.
