Medical Device Reprocessing

Medical Device Reprocessing (MDR) in collaboration with Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) has developed two educational videos that provides detailed information on how to reprocess critical and semicritical medical devices correctly to ensure patient and staff safety. The two videos address reprocessing activities in centralized and decentralized reprocessing areas.

DVD copies of the videos can be obtained by emailing a request to General_IPC@albertahealthservices.ca

Centralized Medical Device Reprocessing Training Video:

This video is for reprocessing staff in a centralized area that is dedicated to reprocessing medical devices such as surgical instruments, endoscopes, respiratory equipment, etc.
