Dear Shamsa.

It will be a best practice when all cut instruments in surgery will be sharp. However, like it was write in report of Prof. L’Hochie Yahia, Prof, IGB « The effects of steam sterilization on stainless steel instruments», 11 World congress of sterilization, Sao Paulo, Brazil, 30.07.2010 all sharp instruments are became blunt from the work. And if we are speaking about single use razors for scalpels there is not a problem to change it. But if we are speaking about scissors (multiuse device) we are should sharpening it from time to time when they became blunt. Unfortunately blunt instruments bring contusion to the tissues and this process can by cause of inflammation of surgical wound, in this time sharp instruments are cut tissues without contusion and surgical wound heal correctly.
I was not so some guidelines about sharpening scissors but in my CSSD we are sharpening scissors with special sharpening device and polish instruments when it will be need. After sharpening scissors and polishing instruments we are making passivation process (three time manual cleaning with alkaline detergent with dry in the air it after cleaning.) to prevent rust on instruments.
There is link on my report in last December.
