Sterilization, Cleanliness and Disposable Materials :-

Surgery Upkeep
The Sterilization starts with the cleanliness, we take all primary steps to maintain the cleanliness like outside shoes are not allowed in side the surgeries, At the beginning of the day the floors are thoroughly scrubbed with scented Phenol which leaves the place clean and smelling fresh. All carpeted/non carpeted areas are meticulously cleaned with a high power vacuum cleaner to get all the dust mites out and prevent air borne infections if any. The chairs and all moving/rotating parts are sprayed with antiseptic solution( isoproplye achohol or Bacillol) and wiped clean with a soft cloth. After every patient the same procedure is followed for the chairs to prevent cross infection.we fumigate( used to disinfect operation theater) the clinic one in week.

Instrument Sterilization

All instruments are thoroughly washed in antiseptic solutions and wiped clean. They are then packaged into sterile pouches (which has the indicator which indicates that instruments are completely sterilized) and vacuum sealed to prevent contamination. The instruments are then sterilized in digital autoclave for 15 min at 121 degree temperature.
