Switzerland tightens guidelines for devices on loan

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

A written contractual agreement between hospitals and organisations that hire out specific surgical instruments in Switzerland could greatly reduce the risk of infection. This is the main thrust of the advice attached to new guidelines laid down by the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic products, Swissmedic. The biggest problem is that hospitals often cannot carry out to the highest possible standard procedures connected with the washing, disinfecting or sterilising of instruments for their reuse.
