Hi Al jabri,

AS/NZS 4187:2014 (Australia/New Zealand Standards) clearly states that a Bowie & Dick test “Shall” be run on a daily basis. As this recommendation falls under the Normative section of the standards, it is not Optional. But this is in Australia & New Zealand.

The question is ‘in the Sultanate of Oman, What Standards are followed’?
What does this Standard say?
What does the Standard Operating Policy for our Hospital state?

Lastly, some practical suggestions:

1) Include a ‘Process Challenge Device’ in every Load as a means of Load Monitoring

2) Include a ‘Biological Indicator’ as far as practical

3) Inform ‘Infection Control’ and seek Authorisation

4) Document the above in the department’s Risk Register

Cheers mate, You take care

Kind Regards

Ravi Nayak
