All steps in preventing the spread of infectious diseases improve patient safety. Packaging plays an important role in infection-control programs. Sterilization packaging is an essential part of a final sterile product.
Infections acquired during healthcare cause unnecessary costs and human suffering.
Improving Patient Safety
In treatment of patients – whether in surgical procedures and operations, in a dentist’s office, or elsewhere – careful attention shall be paid to the cleanness and sterility of all instruments, devices, and other supplies, with their appropriate aseptic handling also taken into account. Sterility is an absolute must, allowing no compromise. Only intact packaging can serve as a sterile barrier. The same conditions apply for both reusable and single-use products.
