DoH Decontamination Programme

Decontamination is the combination of processes (including cleaning, disinfection and sterilization) used to make re-usable medical devices safe for further use on patients and handling by staff. The effective decontamination of re-usable medical devices is essential in reducing the risk of transmission of infectious agents.
