All items that contain blood or outher biological liquids must to come in dirty zone of CSSD. This zone is prepared to work with dirty instruments. If you are receive MD after reprocessing from CSSD with blood, that is mean that CSSD have problems with WD or with eyes and skills of the staff. If you have (sometimes it’s happened) reprocessed MD with out of date, but it was reprocessed correctly before, you should send it on clean zone for changing packaging materials and sterilization. Every time you should have standard operating procedures on this case with CSSD that write with consideration with local standards.
Hope it’s help
