Dear dhanu 1975!

All of processes, that we are use for reprocessing of MD bring us to the finish (sterile item). I think in some failure in the process you are should do one step back. If you have failure of WD process you should know: what the reason of the failure, repair your WD and start WD process again. If you have failure in sterilizer you should know what the reason of the failure, repair your sterilizer, change packaging materials (in contact with steam they are changing 1 Class indicators and change air conductivity). You must to change chemical indicators in special sets (if CI in each pack –is standard in your country). After changing indicators and repackaging, in conditions that your sterilizer is working well, you can sterilize your MD.
Hope it’s help.

Thanks for the answer still have doubt
Any document which can state the above answer,that only repackaging and changing of indicator is required and not the whole load will go back to decontamination area for reprocess,(Since process in CSSD starts from cleaning followed by decontamination.

Hi Dhanu,
It all depends on the standard that you follow. In AS4187 standard in Australia, we are supposed to reprocess the load from decontamination cycle. The reprocessing begin from with decontamination cycle then pack & wrap and sterilization.

Another rationale for reusable medical devices to go through decontamination to ensure that;-
– to create a passivation layer from contact with the chemical (alkaline)
– to prolong the lifespan of the instruments
– to prevent rust
– to prevent metal stress and superheating due to high pressure and heat
Just like a piece of paper when repeatedly put in the oven, it becomes brittle and can break easily. The same goes for metal. This is the best practice.

But some organization will take the undertaking that they will bypass the decontamination process if it is still in CSSD and does not come into contact with the patient yet. So it all depends on the organization to make that final call after consulting CSSD.

I hope that answers your doubt.
